Adding a check box type custom field

Hi

I want to add a single check box tpe custom field on my create issue screen. but I cannot find the option in the custom field types.

Can we add single check box fields and have the field searchable later on?

The other alternatives that I have is single select list and radio buttons.

Single check boxes are there, but as part of another type of field. This really is not obvious, and a lot of people miss it (me included when I was first asked to do it)

The logic: Think of a multiple check box field - you've got loads of options on the list there, and each one appears as a check box in a Jira screen. Now think what you'll get if you create one of these fields and only give it one option.

Sounds awesome. Thanks Nic..
