How can I see more fields in the backlog list (Plan mode), like assignee , report ?

Hi, I would like to see more information when I setup the sprint in Plan mode, but too many stories, I want to know the coresponding assignee , but now it just have the key & subject , no more. What should I do ?

I have a custom field in issues that contains and external numeric ID.  How would I display that for each issue in the Backlog list in the Plan stage of JIRA Agile?

You can configure the colors of the cards within the Agile board (including the Plan mode backlog view) to display based on assignee. Meaning a different card color would be used for each user. User1 displays a red mark, User2 a purple, and so on.

This would accomplish what you are trying to do.

To do this, while viewing your board, go to Board > Configure Board > Card colors, then change the Colors based on field to Assignees.

If you want to get more complex than this, you could create JQL queries for each type of category, which enables you to base card colors on whatever you like, including the reporter field.

Let me know if this solution doesn't seem like it would work for you.

Is this the only way to add additional filters to the board view?

@John Paz1 (not sure why your @ name has a 1 but not in your post :P)

I think what @Leo Liao is after is something like the filter results gadget on dashboards. A way to customize the information you see.

For me in Jira cloud I see the following:

  1. Issue Type (icon)
  2. Summary
  3. Assignee (image)
  4. Key
  5. Priority (icon)
  6. Story Points

I'd be interested in customizing this for each board independently.

Did you find something useful about this one?

@Joshua Balsillie Yes I'm also looking to customize the field list mentioned above and add few more fields. Can someone help on how to do that.

Have you tried the steps in the following article?

There is a section on how to add or delete fields, but I haven't attempted it myself yet.

@Leo Liao

I just came across the following article:

Probably going to look into this myself.
