Standard issue field disappeared

The issue filed "Remaining Estimate", which according to this link appears to be standard, has totally disappeared from my Jira Core.

I try to find it in Settings -> Issues -> Field Configurations -> Default screen configuration (which in theory is where I should see all standard fields), it just is not there. As if it never existed. But, I also use BigPicture and from there there's a view which shows me all the standard fields of Jira Core issues, and "Remaining Estimate" is right in the list.

How can I do to make it come back?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi @Roberto Colombo 

Remaining Estimate isn't a standalone field, it's a part of the field "Time Tracking"


There's a few things to bear in mind with Time Tracking:

  • It needs to be on the issue screen and/or the issue layout (for the new issue view) to be visible on the issue's screen
  • It needs to be set to shown in your field configuration scheme to be utilised
  • Time Tracking can be impacted based on a user's permissions

To see more about how Time Tracking works, see this page


Time Tracking also looks different on the new view than classic view:

  • New View: When time is logged, time logged and time remaining are within one progress bar
  • Classic View: Logged Work and Remaining Estimate are separate - these do look like separate fields

Even though it isn't a standalone field, it should still be possible to utilise as a column in Issue Search, etc.

Hi Stephen,

thank you very much for your explanation, it's been really appreciated. Now I can see why.
