Looking for some help in order to be able to visually represent an issue as flagged on the sprint board. At the moment you can either right click on an issue/sub task and select add flag. Or you can click on the issue, click on the dots and select add flag.
However, there is no flag visible on the actual card in the sprint board nor is there any change of color. The only way to see that the issue is flagged, is by clicking on the issue and seeing the "🚩 Flag added Blocked".
Is there a way to display this icon on the card? I also tried customizing the color of the card through JQL. E.g. "Flagged is not EMPTY", "Flagged = Blocked", "Flagged = Impediment". No luck there either. I am seeing a few others having the same problem but no solution.
If anyone has the same issue, the solution is the following.
Go to settings->Issues->Field Configurations->[Select the configuration you are using, e.g. "Default field configuration"]
Scroll down to section "Flagged" and click on where it says "Show" on the right hand side.
This "colored" my cards and also added the flag on the card.
We had a similar issue with the "Flagged" field on the Cloud version.
Originally, the "Flagged" field was not Locked within the Field Configuration.
For whatever reason, a prior administrator decided to "Hide" the "Flagged" field in one of our Field Configurations.
About a year ago, Atlassian engineers decided to Lock the "Flagged" field. When doing this, it corrupted the Field Configuration when the "Flagged" field was Hidden. I could tell because the "Screens" link was no longer displayed for the "Flagged" field .
How did we fix it? I had to open a ticket with Atlassian Support. They temporarily "unlocked" the "Flagged" field, made it visible again (in the Field Configuration) and then the system automatically "relocked" the field (after some hours).
Thanks for taking the time to reply. As I stated before, I did exactly as you are suggesting. I am expecting to see the icon and change of color on the board but that is not happening. I am attaching a screenshot. On the left, I see the flag only when I actually click on/open up the issue. On the board, there is no representation of this..
