I want to use labels and show them on my issue cards in my board. When I create a label by writing the value from the board view it appears on the issue card for 1/2 second, then it disappears. Is that a bug or what am I doing wrong? I also can't see card options in my board settings, se screen shot. Why is that?
You need to have admin rights to a board this article below should help
If you pass this to your administrators they will know what needs to happen. Once you have the permission set my first reply will make sense.
This may well be the issue here. Im using a Kanban Board in the examples but have seen these options in the project you are mentioning.
I think the issue may well be that you have multiple labels assigned - @Bill Sheboy provided a solution for this and i agree with him. Sounds like a restart is needed first.
You appear to be using a team-managed project. To add the fields for that one:
The values for labels are only shown when still in use.
For example, let's say you added labels to an issue for: A, B, and C. When editing any issue you will see those options available, and you can add others when needed. If you wanted to remove "C" from the list shown, it would need to be deleted from all issues which use it.
Hi, thank you @Bill Sheboy
Now I understand. When I did your query I realized that it's used on issues in another project, owned by another person and has nothing to do with my project. So that means that I can not use that one I guess, but rather need to create new label-fields. That was one step in the right direction :). Now I just need to figure out how I can get my new label field to show on the card in the board. Do you know?
I suggest first removing all labels fields from the card view, exit all browsers, start your browser and then try re-adding the field.
If you still see multiple "labels" fields, or the field doesn't display when added, I recommend chatting with your Jira site admin to uncover what is happening.
You need to use the Board Settings on the top right of the board 3 dots ... Then see screen shot for displaying them on the cards in the board.
Then go into the 'Issue detail view' and add lables there. You will need to ensure in each issue Type - 'Epic','Bug' etc that you have 'Issues' added to. I can share that with you as well if you havnt done that.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, the problem is it doesn't look like yours. When I press the 3 dots I only get 3 choices: Manage workflow, Manage custom filters and Configure board. When I choose "Configure board" I get the view below. Am I using the wrong type of project or do I not have enough administrative rights?
