Hi Marjan Posedi,

Thanks so much for your question.

I have done some research into this for you and it looks you will be able to configure the number format for custom fields by modifying a velocity file. In particular, look at the file 


The steps involved to do this are as follows:

  1. Shutdown Jira
  2. Look for WEB-INF/classes/templates/plugins/fields/view/view-number.vm
  3. Replace $!numberTool.format($value) with $value.longValue()
  4. Start Jira

If you are seeking to change the number format beyond just custom fields, this is unfortunately not supported. We have an open feature request for this functionality which you can watch and vote on here.

Thank you,
