Show priority for sub-tasks list (from task view)

I want to show priority on sub-task lists.



I have a task named "Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich". It has subtasks:

  1. Buy Peanut Butter (we're out!) [priority: Critical]
  2. Get two slices of bread from stock [priority: Major]
  3. Apply Peanut butter to one slice [priority: Major]
  4. Apply jelly to the other slice [priority: Major]
  5. Add banana slices to the peanut butter slice [priority: Trival]
  6. Final task: Connect halves together to make a sandwich [priority: Major]


However, if I'm viewing the "Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich" parent task, while I can see all the subtasks together in a list, I can't see which one is more important. It's probably a good idea for me to go buy peanut butter before I do anything else - it's a high risk task! What if I tried to make the sandwich late at night after all the stores were closed? It would be a project failure. In contrast, the banana slices are optional, and so less important.

Hi Colden,

Are you using JIRA Cloud or Server?  If you're in Server you may find some tips here:

More specifically, you can go to Administration --> General Configuration --> Advanced (button at the bottom of the page) --> jira.table.cols.subtasks, and add the column you need

If you're in the Cloud, I don't think this is supported.

Hi Colden, 

It's also supported for Jira Cloud. You should go to General Configuration -> Advanced Settings:


I can't seem to find this setting in the most recent version of Jira, any pointers?


Hi Kenny,


Please specify exact version of Jira.
