How to add more fields on the kanban card?



Is it possible to add more than 3 fields on a kanban card.

I am using Atlassian JIRA Project Management Software (v6.2.6).

 Thanks !

actually you can increase the fields as described. here you can see I have 4 fields. it is related to the statuses of your project workflow. I had 4 statuses and added each of them to one field.


Like Ashish Waingankar likes this

These aren't fields, these are columns on a board mapped to a status. Fields are priority, summary,components....


oh ok I get it now.

Thanks Christian!! smile 

I think, it is possible in JIRA  7. 

No. Not in 7.1 either. This limitation is making it difficult for us too.

When we can expect more than three additional fields?

2016? I just added a comment here that was created over a year ago. And people need this for over 2 years now? You too should add a comment on the jira issue

My squad would find it most helpful to see at least 4 fields on our Kanban board cards. What is the delay? 

P.S I can't seem to add a comment to JSWSERVER-15624?    


I have made a work around solution for this using "Automation for Jira", it could be made in scriptrunner as well

I have made a custom filed "card information 1".

When saving the Epic (in this case) I update the field with values from 3 different fields e.g. Fix version, pending reason 

Not the greatest solution, but it works and my uesers are happy :-)

Is there a date when this feature will be available?  We would like the option to add up to 6 fields to a board.

if you mean columns like to do, in progress etc. you can do it in the configuration of your kanban board.
