How can I modify the issues page so that subtasks appear with a date?


I am trying to figure out a way to display the due date of an issues subtasks in the menu of the main issue. For clarity, here is an example of what I would like:

Say we have issue_1 with the subtasks subtask_2 and subtask_3. I would like to be able to click on issue_1 and see the due dates of subtask_2 and subtask_3 in the list view of all subtasks. This would allow me to see all due dates of subtasks without having to click on each one individually. 

I have researched the topic and have read numerous outdated articles but nothing seems to fit this specific situation. I have tried editing the jira.table.cols.subtasks under system > advanced settings where I added duedate but nothing seemed to change.

For clarity, I have attached a screenshot to simplify what I am looking for.


Any ideas?

Hi @Shane Flanagan 

This isn't really possible in Jira Cloud.

It used to work by modifying the jira.table.cols.subtasks option in Advanced Settings - click here to see how - but that only works in the old issue view (which as of 31/03/2021, can no longer be your default view).

There is a suggestion to bring it the new issue view, see JRACLOUD-70206.

You can still temporarily see it working using this option to click-through to the old view, but it's not ideal as you'd need to do it every time you open an issue.


Hi in this link you have the section How to choose which sub-task fields display on parent issues with the Following indications:


You can define which sub-task issue fields are displayed in the sub-tasks section of a parent issue.

  1. Choose  > System
  2. Click General configuration > Advanced settings.
  3. For the jira.table.cols.subtasks property key, edit the field values. Note that the summary field is a mandatory value and that fields will appear on parent issues in the same order you list them. Please refer to API documentation - Constant Field Values  to see all constant field options.
  4. Click Update.
