You can use the Script Runner plugin (below), which has a script custom field type. Then all you have to do is create a simple script that will show the component's lead. Also, you need to keep in mind that an issue can have more than one component.

Hi kjacobs,

You can create a custom field to display that information.

The plugin also provides a components issue tab panel to display components related to an issue along with its description and lead.



What Custom Field would I use?

Using Script Runner and creating a Script Field:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def leads = issue.componentObjects.toList()
if (leads) {
    def lead = leads?.first()?.lead
    if (lead) {
