Adding Custom Fields to the New List View in Jira

Wondering if anyone knows how you add a field to show in the new List view for a Classic Business Project.

I have a field that I created and we imported our project from an old site and I noticed the some fields were available and other custom fields were not. 

I tried looking in the Project settings and Field Scheme but not really sure since I couldn't find any documentation on this new List view.

Same here, not even drop-down is being picked up by the List View

yes, I also just made the same unfortunate discovery. How can we attract Atlassian's attention to change this? :) 

At current it’s looks to be only picking custom fields that are Single Text Fields.

I was able to put some custom fields in the list by adding them to edit/view issue screen.

--- what's worked ---

Text Field (single line)
Text Field (multi-line)
Select List (multiple choices)
Select List (single choice)
Url Field
Date Picker
Date Time Picker
User Picker

-- what's not working ---

Number Field
Version Picker
Color of Epic
UUID Field
Message Custom Field
Radio Buttons

Hi @Arun Mj what did you do to show the custom field in the list view?

Same problem. wanted to see custom labels in list view and it's not available.

Same as above. Thanks, @Ales Olasz  I was wondering why some custom fields showed up in list view, but not others.

Found this:

Project admins can set up custom fields that can be used in your list view, although only a limited set of custom field types are supported at the moment. You can currently only add single-line text fields, URLs, and user types. Learn more about setting up custom fields.

As much as that article seems promising, I'm still not having any luck in getting custom fields to appear as an option in the Work Management List view. Did you have any success?

Same problem for me - I have added an "amount" column and cannot see how to get it to appear in the list of "SHOW THESE FIELDS".

Curious as to why Components isn't an option in this list...? This makes work management more difficult for teams, not easier.

I have the same problem in Jira Work Management, and not only with custom fields - I'd like to add Epic Link to my List View and sadly I can't!

According to this page:

 "Jira Work Management currently only supports a limited set of custom field types at the moment."

So custom fields that don't have the types that listed in the page below, will not show in the pulldown menu.

Apparently "More custom fields will be added over time to give you and your team more flexibility in viewing specific information in your list."
