Is there any workaround for showing fields with no data in the issue view screen ?

2 answers


as of now we can't show the custom field if it is empty, check the following issues

You have e.g. 1 open ticket according this topic:


You may try solution to override method getValueFromIssue (if that is your own created CustomField ):



public String getValueFromIssue(CustomField field, Issue issue) {

// TODO Auto-generated method stub

String value = super.getValueFromIssue(field, issue);

return (value == null) ? "" : value ;


 You may also check the following issues

if you want to display the custom fields then set some default value
