Cannot edit CSS using Announcement Banner

Dear Atlassian Community, 

I am trying to edit Status value by adding custom code in Announcement Banner. 

The idea is increase status length in Jira issue view screen.


Instruction described here: 

applied this code to Announcement banner: 

  max-width: 150px;

However it is seems this approach is not working. Could you please suggest if there are any other options? Thank you!

Best regards,

Hi Anneta,

I'm convinced the steps mentioned in the link you gave us is only for extending text box lengths, not for the size of the status labels.

I was able to find a suggestion on this topic:

If you like start watching this issue and also feel free to vote.

Likeliness is then higher that this wish is implemented in later versions of Jira.


Hi Daniel, 

Thank you, put myself as a watcher :)
