How to enable development information icons on next-gen board cards?


On some of my next-gen Jira Cloud projects, cards on the board display icons indicating the status of Pull Requests and other development information. For example, the Pull Request merged icon in bright green in the middle of this screenshot:

However, on another of my boards, the icons representing pull/merge requests do not show at all, even though inside the cards the development information all shows up correctly:

I've looked everywhere and cannot find any instructions on how to enable this feature for a given board (or, indeed, disable it!). It's a very useful feature for quickly assessing whether PRs have been merged up or not, so I'd really like to find out how to turn it on!

Thanks in advance for any advice/pointers.

Same issue here.

Any solution for this one. I have the same thing and it's annoying me so much.

Hi @Alexander Dowding  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Have you checked in Project Settings > Features > Code to see if that option is enabled?

Best regards,


Hi @Bill Sheboy – thanks for the welcome!

Yes, Project Settings > Features > Code is enabled, and we can see our GitHub commits in the "Development" sub-panel of the card, as noted above. I've compared all the settings I can see between the project where this feature works and where it doesn't, and I can't see any differences. Quite the conundrum.

Many thanks,


Odd... I just checked the public backlog and didn't see any open defects on this.  If no one else comments for a bit, I suggest submitting a support ticket to Atlassian here:

I'm facing the same issue @Alexander Dowding  is having

The pull request icon appears on just one of my Boards, but the Development section is displayed fine within the card.

@Alexander Dowding were you able to fix this?
