How to add column to the default "All issues" list view?

Hi, I am a new user of Jira, and when displaying the "list view" of "All issues" in my project, the columns that are displayed are: Type, Key, Summary, Asignee, Reporter, Priority, Status and Created. 

I have googled a lot but weren't able to find a way to edit the columns mentioned above. For example, I would like to remove the "Reporter" column and add the "Updated" column.

This is a fresh configuration, I don't have any custom filters or boards created.

How can I achieve my goal?

Hi @ZenThisUp ,

If you're a Jira Admin, you will also see the System tab, where you can change the columns for all users who have not set their own defaults. When administrators are configuring default columns, their permissions are ignored so that they can add a project-specific custom field from a project they don't have permissions to see. The field, though, is never shown to users that don't have permission to see it.


For more information, please, take a look to this article



Thank you Fabio, I see the Systems tab now. The difficulty was finding the Columns button, as one needs to first click on the "Go to advanced search" button to get there.

@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ 

How do you make these updates happen after clicking "Issues" on the left hand pane without having to then click on advanced search again... 

Hi @Peter Donald ,

unfortunately, you can't. You need to click to "Go to Advanced Search" to perform that configuration.
