How do you edit the values for the Category field?

Patrick Haley August 17, 2022

Hey all, 

I see that the Category is in my Jira Work Management issue fields as a default. Where do I actually add values for it though?

Hi @Patrick Haley 

A way of adding values would be to go to List and then add new category to each issue:

Wondering the same thing, here's the doco for the field with the answer we seek...

https://support.atlassian.com/jira-work-management/docs/categorize-items-in-your-list-view/

 

Implies that issues come first, then categories. Rather than categories, then issues (as per Components).

Weirdly, you can add a bunch of Categories to the same issue, one after the other. They'll all appear in the drop-down selector.

 

NOTE: "Only admins can add categories"

Cheers,

PeteQ
