List of Available Column Names

I am trying to find a way to display the 400+ column names available to us. Please let me know how I would access this. 

Right now, if I click on the "Columns" button, a dropdown menu appears. It only displays the columns I am using and a few more that are in alphabetical order. At the bottom of this menu, a message essentially reads "There are 395 options available. Start typing to see what comes up."

I was hoping there was a more efficient way to view the column names available. Let me know if there is / isn't, and thanks.

Hey @Shannon Middleton 

Looks like there is a bug request for Atlassian to show more than just a set of custom fields in the columns. JRASERVER-59412 

Your best option right now is to start by typing out what you are looking for. I'd focus on the fields that are within your particular project as those will the columns that will have data in them. 

You could end up adding a column that does not relate to your specific project and it will have no data in it, thus it's useless. 

I would suggest maybe requesting that your Jira admin creates a page (if you have confluence) or reference somewhere of what custom fields are available in the Jira system and what type of field they are. 

I had this for my company and it worked really well when it came to requesting custom fields, or adding a custom field to a screen. 

Hope this helps! 


Unfortunately above solution does not help me on the exact same problem. 

If someone can help me with list of available columns, as its required to provide IT service management training and utilization of these columns through creation of filter is highly applicable.  

Please let me know.
