Adding a check box type custom field


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..


use the Multi checkboxes and add only one option

Thanks should work...
