Priority in Jira Work Management board

I want to display the priority field of an issue in the board of a Jira work management project, but I cannot seem to find board settings menu item. Is this not available for Jira work management? If this is possible, where can i configure this?

Hi @Wim Van Houts ,

No, the board is very limited with Jira Work Management and you are not able to modify it to show additional fields. 

You can drag fields up or down though to change the priority of the cards in a column. 

so this is only available in Jira service management and Jira software, or, only in one of them ?

Yes, it is only available in Jira Service Management and Jira Software Company-managed projects. 

Ok, thx for the answer and the quick reply!

I realize the answer was accepted, but the board does seem to allow it, although it still doesn't show.  I've toggled it on and off, but nothing.  I've tried this on multiple boards.  I believe this is a bug.  priority in board.PNG
