I would like to create a field called Completion Criteria that shows up in the Issue Detail View just like the issue description.
I have managed to create a field, but when I am adding it to the issue detail view I must choose which category to put it in (e.g., Details, People, Dates, etc.)
How can I add my custom field to the same level as e.g. Details and Description in the issue detail view?
JIRA handles that for you - if the field is a system field, it goes in details or one of the other dedicated panels, if it's a date, it's in the date section, and if it's a user, then it goes under people.
Custom fields go into the custom field area.
You can hack this on server versions and tell it that certain custom fields belong in different panels, but as it's code-change, you won't be able to do it on Cloud.
So, to be clear: it is not possible to have a field called "Completion Criteria" the works just like Description? Essentially, I would like to duplicate the Description field. But I guess it should be a system field, then?
You can have a field that works like Description, it's the free-text custom field.
But it won't appear in the Description section on issue view. Everything else will work like description does.
