Freeze headers in Issue Navigator

When we search any issue or use filters in Issue Navigator (List view), the header will scroll up along with issues when you scroll down, and it become difficult to remember the name of column.

How can we freeze the header row?

Hi @Kuldeep Upadhyay

if you're open to solutions from the Atlassian Marketplace, I think you might like JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing and inline-editing all your issue fields. You can freely add, remove, re-order, and resize these fields, and view up to 10000 issues in one list, so many customers found it a great addition to the native Issue Navigator.

Plus, the column header always stays visible :)

Here's how it looks in action:


It's worth noting that JXL can do much more than that; from quick sorting and filtering, to support for "special columns" such as "time in status", to support for issue hierarchies, issue grouping, and sum-ups. Disclaimer: I work on JXL :)

Hope this helps,



Hi @Kuldeep Upadhyay  Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Unfortunately,there is no workaround to freeze headers. Check the open issue :- 

Workaround 1

Access the results from the Issue Navigator (i.e View the issue navigator results in 'List view') and then click on the issue key. DO NOT do a right click>open in a new window.

Alternatively, access an issue using this URL format:


Workaround 2

Add the following script to the Jira's Announcement Banner:

#header {
position: fixed;
top: 0px;
left: 0px;
width: 100%;
z-index: 1000;
.aui-header { z-index: 1001; }

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function() {
AJS.$("#content").css("top", AJS.$("#header").height());
AJS.$("#stalker").css("padding-top", AJS.$("#header").height());
