Could you share an image that explains better what you’re referring to?

Yes. Thanks Jack. 

I have a JIRA tickets used to be like this = correct way 

Screen below is correct 

JIRA (correct(=).PNG

However, recently, I am not sure who update in JIRA, below fields moved to the left.    (Sorry I don't image) But description moved to the right from left and below items moved to the left. 

  • Priority:
  • EPIC:
  • Component:
  • Reporter: 

Any update that I can revert back or change the description to the left view.

Thanks for sharing the image. As Daniel mentions below this is the new issue view. Note you mention some fields above “moving to the left” but actually the are on the right where the should be in the new issue view.

Hi @Jenny Qu

I am not sure if I am getting you fully - but from what is visible you are now using "New Issue View" - this is a modernized user interface which is now in operation for the Jira cloud users.

You can still switch to the old view by clicking (...) > See the old view - on a per issue basis. But as this one is deprecated I'd suggest getting familiar with the "New Issue View".

Touching on your question if you can put the fields on the left - yes it is possible, please see an example here:


You can learn about how it is configurered in "Issue Layout" here:

Especially watch or the part that describes "Context fields" vs. "Description fields". When putting fields to "Description fields" they are on the left (as in my screenshot).



Thank you Dan. Yes. I am not aware of this update. Thank you.
