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?

"All Issues"  "My Open Issues" and etc. are Jira filters specified for the particular project.


Please follow this ,

1. Click on "All Issues"

2. Click on "Go to advanced search"

3. Click on "Columns" dropdown

4.  select specified 

5. Done

Thanks a lot!

what if i want to add attachments field in default columns?

or how can we alter default columns to add or remove(permanently)?

default one being assigne, reporter, summary, watchers,..etc i can find all of these in default column field except the attachment.

Hello guys! I am unable to add a single select (single choice) custom field column to "All Issues" in the company-managed software project. is there any restriction for the custom field? @KAGITHALA BABU ANVESH  @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ 

As other point out, you can not edit the columns in the Issues list UI, only the Search/Filter UI.

Being able to configure the columns on the Issues view should be configurable like the fields on the Kanban boards view. That Atlassian made two very similar screens with almost identical uses (the Issues list and Search/Filter UIs) behave differently is a bit disappointing

100%. This is incredibly unintuitive. If they're going to behave differently (can not adjust columns) then make the appearance on-screen different. This is leading to SO much wasted time.

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.

Like Peter Donald likes this

@Peter Donald, may be you can copy the URL of the page (which you have configured your own filter etc), and add as a project shortcut.
