Column is not shown if not used in query

René Steg Oct 09, 2012

Sometimes JIRA does not show custom fields added to the result list in the configure column dialog and only after adding those columns to the query, the result list will display them. This seems not to occur, when a simple query is executed, such as "Issuetype = Defect", then the desired columns are all displayed.

We are using JIRA 5

Are those fields in the context of the query? If not explicitly added?

Ah, I was about to say much the same.

For a column to appear in the navigator, it must belong to every issue that the filter *might* return.

e.g. if you have a field called "fred" that only exists on "Bugs" (by virtue of the "context" settings for the field), then if you run a filter for "bugs and features", you won't get the column displayed. Because "features" don't have "fred".

Hi Jobin

not sure, what you mean by context of the query?

Jobin Kuruvilla [Go2Group] Community Leader Oct 09, 2012

Thanks Nic. Should have explained that :)

René Steg Oct 09, 2012

aha, thanks for that explanation and indeed is one of the fields ont in all of the context and I suppose due to the fact, that it was an and operation, both were not displayed, even though one of the fields had a global context.

Thanks again and have a great day ahead.
