Adding custom field for Create JIRA Issue screen in Confluence

Is there a way to display a custom JIRA field in Create JIRA Issue screen in Confluence.

By this what I mean is from the snapshot below I see only Project,Issue Type,Summary,Component,Version/s,Description fields.

I need to display another JIRA custom field, is it possible? If so how ?

Hi, as i see in this Confluence issue on Atlassian project since Confluence 3.5 you can create issues from the confluence. The problem is that how it says on one of the comments: ' there are some limitations around mandatory and custom fields which mean that some project configurations may prevent creation of issues from Confluence.'

Check here:

Here it is the official documentation:

It looks like is not possible to add more fields to the screen.

What you can do is ask on for a new feature.


Hi Raghuram,

How did you manage to add FixVersion and Component in Confluence's "Insert JIRA Issue" screen?


Hi, did you find the solution for this issue? Thanks.

I have the same issue, I have a custom field that I called Client for an issue. I see the field when I create an issue on JIRA but I dont see it when adding from Confluence.

There is something new with it??
