Headers on the Create issue screen


We are running 4.0 version of Jira.

I have a requirement to divide the Create screen by several sections, each should have a header.

For example:

General info




Contact details

- phone

- email


How can I make such headers?

I tried read-only fields, but they look like read-only fields and not headers. Also I tried to put HTML code to the Field description, but the HTML code in description is shown AFTER the field, however I need it also to be shown before the very first field.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Hi Anna,

You can use the Jira Toolkit plugin. It provides a "Message Custom Field".


You can also use tabs and assign the screen to your "Create Issue" action in your issue screen scheme.

Hi nbhushan, i will check the toolkit plugin. Thanks!

Hi Harry, nbhushan,

I have installed the plugin but when creating the new custom field the available issue types are:

  • Message Custom Field (for view)
  • Message Custom Field (for edit)

I have tried "for view" an it is displayed on View screen, but not showing up on the Create screen (I added it to Create screen as well). Are you sure it can be added to Create screen somehow?..

Thanks again.


The (for edit) one works in the create/edit screen.

Hi Harry,

It does work!

Thanks a lot!

Hi, you can look at the JIRA Toolkit Plugin. This allows you to have HTML custom fields on the create/edit/transition screen(s). You can then put up banners, headers, anything you like.

Assuming you are using the download version of course.

Hi Harry, i will check it!
