How can I show a custom field like we show description?

I'm not a JIRA admin, so I don't have access to do any changes. The JIRA admin thinks we need a plugin to achieve what I want, but I'm not so sure.

 

According to this tutorial, it's very simple to create a custom field (text box). But showing it like we show description is a according the the JIRA admin not possible without a plugin.

Is it possible, out of the box, to show custom fields like we show description and issue links / comments?

Following Charlie Misonne's suggestion, we only get this. The custom field becomes a part of the Details section. We want this custom field to be a custom editable section like shown on the pic below.

Can this be done following Vitaliy's suggestion?

Not sure what you mean by "like we show description"

If you mean in the agile view at the right of you board you board admin can do the following:

  • board configuration -> issue Detail View
    Here you can define which fields to show

 

Great. And if I click the issue link and get a full view of the issue, will it show here as well?

that's another setting but probably it will

Your admin should add the field to the screen used for the "view" operation. He can check which screen is in use in the screen scheme of the project and add the field to the appropriate screen

Charilie (and @vitaliy zapolskyy), see my above update. Is it clearer now what I'm trying to achieve? smile

Ok so you want it under a separate header

I don't think that's possible

Issue type screen scheme define what screens are used in "Create", "Edit" and "View" modes (its possible to use the same screen).

Screen you've provided seems to be "View" screen.

JIRA Admin can add desired custom field to this screen. The most convenient way is to use Admin helper: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/jira-admin-helper-802593078.html

Note: JIRA shows Description placeholder even when there is no description (it is blank). Any blank custom field will not be shown. I doubt if any plugin can override this behavior.

Despite this is marked as "Solved", I spent quite a few hours trying to understand how to fix this. 

You need to create a Text Field, and convert it to WIKI style text render. This way you will be able to post URL. 

Here is 5 minute video which I have created on how to do this.

I hope it helps. 

Since 2016, no answer was given ?
Is it possible now, 4 years later, with all updates done ?

 

To be clear :

- We have added custom fileds but they appear under Detail header.

- We would like custom fields in separate headers, like Detail, Description...

 

Exemple of a Issue View:

- Header Detail with all default fields

- Header Description_1 (to be renamed) with wiki multi-lines text field

- Header Description_2 (to be renamed) with wiki multi-lines text field

- and so one

 

I'm using Jira Software/Core 8.5.1
