Hide custom field in request form but show it in issue view in portal


We're currently setting up our JIRA Service Management portal for our clients.

For feature requests we want to add a custom field, named: 'Estimation in hours'. The field should not be shown to the client during the request in the form. It's filled in by the agents after a while. After it's filled in by the agents it should appear in the client portal on the ticket.

Problem is I can add it to the issue view, then the client isn't able to fill it in during the request, but it's also not showing in the portal issue view.

Is there a way / work around to solve this?


Kind regards,

Hi @Nick Louwers - The only way to make a field visible to the customer is to use the Forms feature.  You can create a custom form and have the field linked to your Estimation in Hours field.  Then you would train your agents to attach the form and submit it.  The form can then be locked and published, granting the customer visibility.

Note - You can also leverage automation to attach the form at the right time signaling the agent to fill it out and submit.

Thanks for the input Mark. I've found another solution via an add-on named: 'Advanced Portal Reports'. It allows you to show all fields on the portal issue view. I also saw a feature request at the JIRA support forum with lots of votes.

Hi Nick, can you share the link to the jira support area, would like to throw in my vote.

We're not allowed to use plugins in our org. and having something like this is quite critical for showing a summary (we have a series of forms and I want to show key outcomes of these forms at the top of the ticket).
