hi @abir 


Jira only shows Columns and Status under the 'Columns' section of Board configuration.

The Cards will be shown in the Kanban board when there are issues. Can you share details on what are you trying to solve for



@Gowtam Kamath 

Hi Gowtam,

I have grouped many statuses under one column. For example testing in development environment and testing in production environment under one column of "Testing". However to be able to differentiate the exact status of the card without opening it, I want this status to show on the card.

How can I achieve this?


Hi @abir 


You need to customize the card Layout on the Board.

Board Settings -> Card layout  -> Add 'Status' field. 

Refer this

That's the problem. "Card layout" is not showing for me. 

The type of my project is "Team managed" not "Company managed". Is this the reason?

I guess so but I am not confident. The Board customizations options are limited in the Team managed project Boards.

Thanks! Apparently this is the reason and I will migrate my project to "company-managed". 

Appreciated your support.
