Is there a way to change the style of a subtask within the issue view, depending on the status?

The team asked me to highlight sub-tasks in review or in progress differently within the issue view, for example:



(To view it in a different colour or style,...)


Is there a way to do it?

Hi @Sakher  - You will not be able to change the look and feel of the list of sub-tasks on the issue view itself. You could change the color on the board, but not in the issue view.

Hi @Sakher 

If you absolutely have to there is a way to do this, however this is not the best practice and it will most likely break when the version is upgraded.

You can inject a javascript/jquery code to determine if the subtask is in Progress and add a css to highlight them.

A sample code may look like below:


if(e.val() == 'In Progress'){
  e.css("style here")



Either you add them in Custom HTML in the look and feel or you can install a free add-on called JSIncluder to inject the script in a specific Issuetype or Project. 

I like that :)
