I would like to add a custom field called "Freshdesk Case" to the Details section of our Issues screens.
How can this be accomplished?
I've created the field, but cannot find how to place the field on the screens I need.
Thanks for your time and help.
If you don't mind where in the 'details' section the field will show, then you can do it.
Your screen mockup implies that you want the field to show on the right, under your 'Resolution' field. As Nic says, that can't be done.
If you don't mind it being on the left, in the same column as your 'Environment' field, (but above the Description section) then you can do it.
- Choose (JIRA Administration) > Issues.
- In the Fields section, click Custom Fields.
- Find your 'Freshdesk Case' custom field and click > Screens.
- Tick the checkbox(es) for the screens on which you want to display this custom field.
If you don't know which screen you need to add it to, or you still can't get the field to show:
This will give you helpful information on why you can't see the field, and how to make it show.
Hope this helps. But let me know If you are still having problems getting it to show and I'll try to help more.
Hi @Sam Hall,
Thank you so much. Your guidance was so clear. Really helpful.
So, I was able to add the field to the description section (if I add a value), but I'm running up against this:
... I did set a "default value" as None in the Custom Field Configuration section.
Is it possible to get the field to always appear? I thought by adding a default value this would happen. What am I missing?
What type or field is your custom field? Text Field (single line)?
If it is, then setting default value to the text "None" will work, but it will only apply for new issues that you create.
If you want to set it on existing issues, then you'll need to edit each issue and set the value. It's possible to do this in bulk if you need. Take a look at: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/editing-multiple-issues-at-the-same-time-776997757.html

If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
