Can you display a custom field from a sub-task item on the parent's issue details screen? Edited


I am looking for some help. 

I created a custom field to be used on sub-task issues.  I was wanting this specific custom field to appear on the parent issue's detail screen in the sub-task area.

Is it possible to display a custom field/add a column to the sub-task section on a issue?

Hi @Margaret Hodges  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

That is not possible at this time with Jira Cloud.  Here is a suggestion from 2013 to add the feature.  I did not find a more recent one.

Best regards,


Thank you for your response.  I didn't think this was an available feature at this time, but had to ask.
