How to display status on backlog view tickets

Hi Team,

You can configure cards on a board to display up to three additional fields. The fields can be different for the Backlog and Active sprints, if you are using a Scrum board.

  1. Go to the desired board, then click Board > Configure.
  2. Click Card layout, then add or delete fields as desired.

Documentation here:

I just published this Chrome Extension to help with this, it does require setting up the extra fields: Jira Backlog Status - Chrome Web Store (

This extension does not work, I've set all the fields in the board settings, but it still doesn't fix the UI

Oops, there was a bug where the code was tied to specific project name, I've published an update v1.0.1, I'll drop a line once it's reviewed and released.

@Bruno de Queiroz the new version v1.0.1 was just approved and published, please let me know if it works as expected.

A few things to look out for:

  • Please double check that the extension version installed is v1.0.1
  • Make sure when adding the extra fields in board settings the first/top field is status for both Backlog & Active Sprints.
  • When on the backlog view, the url starts with https://**
