Adding Fields to the "Flagged" Screen?

Good Morning All,


I am curious if it is possible to add fields to the "Flagged" dialog screen. By default this screen only comes with a comments field, but I would like to add more.


I would also like to know if I can make any of those fields required on that screen
And also would like to know if I can make different kinds of flags instead of just "impediment".


All I can see is the options below. When trying to add any contexts or more options, I either see the field is locked or I literally can't find the screen this belongs too.

Hi, we are also interested to update in this screen an additional Custom Field, "Pending Reason" for the blocked issues. Is there any possibility to add additional fields to this screen? Thank you!

This is something my teams work with as well. I am curious, if you set status as "Blocked" the transition to it could have a screen that pops up asking "Why is this blocked?" or something like that. Why are people wanting to use the flag instead of status?

It in case you already have a lot of statuses and the issue could be blocked at each stage. So instead of complicating this use of Jira for the team it would be more "user-friendly" to add this amazing option. 

I'm also interested in this, any way to get this done?

I have found temporary solution which is create a custom field with the list of reason why an issue could be blocked

and then just created jira automations that triggers all the reasons and put Flag, so my team just need to change this custom field
