Custom Currency Field

Is there is nothing in the base product that permits creating a custom currency field; i.e., a numeric field with $ or £ or S/, etc. ?  I see some add-ons, but just want to confirm that I'm not missing something.  I've searched the documentation library, but didn't see any references to currencies.

Thanks!

There's nothing to stop you creating a custom field with a currency in its name.  But Jira will handle it like any other number field.

OK, that's what I thought based on my research.  I was hoping I was missing how to add the currency sign to the numeric value.  Thanks @Nic Brough {Adaptavist}.

Me too. I would have liked to add a field with a prefix of £ (without having to do any fancy coding!)

Best you can do (without writing an app) is to name the field appropriately - e.g. instead of "Cost", name it "Cost £"

Hi Nic - Thanks! I've updated my field...and gone one better. I've added a £ sign as the default value for this field so that I just have to add the figures now!
