Display labels on project board?

I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to show the label of the issue on the board overview page here:


I'm currently on the free plan and just created an account today.

I tried searching and it looks like it's possible but can't figure it out.

Hi @Klaus Nymand ,

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.

To add fields to cards:

  • Click the Jira icon (, , , or ) > Projects > then select the relevant project.
  • Go to your Scrum backlog, Active sprints, Kanban backlog (if enabled), or Kanban board.
  • Go to ••• > Board settings and click Card layout.
  • Add or delete fields as desired
  • .Enable the Days in column toggle to display how many days an issue has been in the board columns.


I'm having a hard time finding the "Board Settings" where should I go from here?


Like Adam Genshaft likes this

The board setting is in the upper right corner of the page. It seems that you do not have the administrator rights for this setting.

This is strange - I created the account and the project, I even added my account to every group and I'm admin: 00000495Is this feature even available on the free plan?

Hi @Klaus Nymand ,

Sorry, I noticed that you are using the jira-core business project.

The functions I mentioned only included in software project types in Jira-software.

Oh okay I see, thanks for the help!

Hi, this may explain my problem as well. I am working in a team managed project and want to add labels to my card. I don't see "Card layout" as on option. Can anyone assist me on how to do this? 2022_09_16_11_16_13_Window.png

Is this still valid?

I can't find any of the settings you mentioned.

I want to show labels on the cards.


However, the above method is not applicable to next-generation projects.

Thanks. Perhaps that should be noted somehow in the documentation about it. I didn't see anywhere that it mentions which version it applies to.
