Hi @Diego Rodrigues da Silva 

To create create custom field you need to follow this steps.

Note: I have taken this steps from Atlassian Official documentation.

Create custom fields

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > Issue types.
  2. Select the issue type you want to edit.
  3. Under Create new field, drag the type of field you want to create. Jira highlights the areas you can drop the field into. Learn more about the available types of custom fields.
  4. Give your new field a name (up to 120 characters).
  5. Configure any extra field options, like adding a description for your team or setting a default value.
  6. Select Save changes.
