How to add Columns/Filters to project issue list view

I'm new to Jira, but I've learned quite a bit about it. I'm the system admin and I'm trying to tailor to my company's need. I've been searching and trying to figure this out, but I can't seem to find anything. Is there a way on Jira Cloud to add columns to a project's issue list view? I have custom fields I'd like to be able to sort on. Here's a screenshot of the view I'm looking at for clarity. Thanks in advance for any advice!

You can not add columns in the project's issue view.

Following workarounds exist:

  • Use the global issue search OR
  • Try Creating a filter using the global issue search with all the fields/ columns you want and then share the filter to the corresponding project and roles in that project.

you should see "Columns" in the list view. I'm a bit confused by the image you have here as it does not look like what I am used to in Cloud but I am on Standard so maybe Premium is different. 


Your view is for ALL project issues. I'm looking at a specific project (we have multiple going) issue view and that's why it is different. I could use the view you're using, but we have external vendors looking at specific projects and the issues assigned them to they need a way to sort their assigned issues in that project based on the custom fields.

ah yes. i see. i never use the project list view much because it is too limited and cannot be configured. :-(
