Hi all. I know ive done this in the past, but I feel like perhaps this is no longer a function? I have two custom fields, severity and priority, which have the entries Low, Minor Major, Critical and Blocker. The default priorities field in JIRA has icons in it and displays that icon in the list/database view for easy recognition. When I set up these two new custom fields so I could add my own terms in, I cannot see an option to add in an icon, just add new value or move position in the list. Can anyone help with this? The only discussions ive found so far are very very out of date.
The option to add icons to options for custom fields is not currently available for Jira.
We had a feature request for Jira Server suggesting this, but it got opened for almost 8 years with zero votes.
If you need to add more priorities, it's possible to add and edit the system priorities.
Please, go to Jira Settings > Issues > Priorities.
For Severity, it won't be able to change because it's a custom field.
Hope it helps!
As the feature was old, it's not recommended to reopen it. Instead, we can create a new one.
Feel free to raise one on jira.atlassian.com (project JRACLOUD) adding more details about why this feature is important for your environment or post here and I'll create the feature.
