We are hosting Jira ourselves and in our setup, Stories have Sub-Tasks. In the detail view of a story, I do see the related Sub-Tasks, but I only see their status, summary, type, assignee and work log. I want to add a column to display the ID of each sub task.
I am aware that I do see the ID when I hover over the sub task summary, but in order to minimise risks for mixups and misunderstandings, I want the ID in plain sight as a separate column.
When I go to
admin panel > System > General Configuration > Advanced
I currently see "issuetype, status, assignee, progress" in the field "jira.table.cols.subtasks". Is this the right spot to add that column? And if so, what is that field's name? "id", "issue id" and "issueid" all yield "The following fields are invalid" followed by whatever I tried so far.
Don't be - the worst case is you'll get a name Jira doesn't recognise and that will give you a blank column with whatever you put in the settings as a header.
e.g. issuekey, customfield_10010, cat, issuetype, 52345, status
Would give you the header
Key, (name of customfield), cat, Issue Type, 52345, Status
With no data in the cat or 52345 columns.
If in doubt, just copy and paste the existing string into a text editor to keep a hold of it to re-paste it in (or come back here and paste in Paul's string)
Hi @Nic Brough -Adaptavist-
We moved from Jira 6.3.10 to Jira 8.3 recently.
Regarding Paul Stahlke's comment, we added 'issue type'.
Before in Jira 6 it was displaying the issue type as it's name, but now it's displaying it as the issue type icon.
Do you know how we can get it to display the text again instead of the icon?
Sorry @Paul Stahlke , where is jira.table.cols.subtasks exactly? I went to Admin > System > General Configuration > Advanced, I do not see it on the left heading at all, nor is that table listing anywhere. in the main body of the page.
Searching for it in admin yields no results. I'm Jira 8.4.
EDIT: Figured it out: [Advanced Settings] is a button on the top right of the Settings page.
I found it there aswell mikutech.
I wanted to add "duedate" in this table, so I can see in the task when a subtask is due.
I edited the table values, but i think I am still missing a final step in the process, because allthough the change was stored, I still don't see the column in the table on the Task detail page.
I also tried taking out columns, but nothing happens to the table.
What Am I missing?
I'm trying to insert sub-tasks' due dates as an additional column on tasks' edit/view screens by including "duedate" in jira.table.cols.subtasks, but I can't get Jira Cloud to render the corresponding column. This is the way I tried to configure the inclusion of "due date."
I'm wondering if you can spot any problems with my implementation. Your help is much appreciated!
I tried changing it to "due," but Jira prevented me from saving the update. Instead, it showed a warning: "The following fields are invalid: due." Do you know if it may have something to do with the fact that I'm working on Jira Cloud and not Server?
This works when you open the issue with "View Issue in Jira". Is there any hope of managing what shows up in the details pane that opens to the right of the backlog view when you select an issue? I would like to be able to add the IssueType to the Subtask list in that view.
