Custom Field type creation in jira

I am unable to get custom field in > Issues > Custom Fields >Advanced.

i have referred a pdf for creating custom field type in jira but i can't see it in custom field tab.... I have followed all the steps given into the pdf but it doesn't shown the custom field.

So, how can I have custom field into the Issues > Custom Fields >Advanced Tab.

I assume you mean Issues -> Custom Fields -> Add custom field -> Advanced.

If your field type is missing from there, then either your add-on has not loaded, or the atlassian-plugin.xml is incorrect, and not telling JIRA about your field type.

Is your add-on displayed in the list of add-ons in Admin -> manage add-ons?  If it is, is it showing as enabled, and with all its modules enabled?

If not, then what does the log say at the time you start JIRA up?

yes  add-ons are shown in the list & they are enabled too.

Ok, that's good, it means it's just your atlassian-plugin.xml that is wrong, and not announcing the fields to JIRA.
