How can I get the Parent key to Displayed in the subtask summary in the view on the parent screen?

Is there a way to see the parent key in the subtask summary that is displayed when viewing the parent card? The parent key shows in the export but not on the screen.

This is not possible on onDemand as it requires some plugins.

Hi Wendy, this could be done with the Script Runner plugin if anyone want to know, the problem is that as you are on the OD version you can't install this plugin.


Hi Ramiro, Could you please explain how to do this with a JIRA download version? Thank you

Can't you just add the key in General Configuration - Advanced settings - jira.table.cols.subtasks ? If so, what would be the name of the column? id and key don't work....


I think that you do this with javascript and REST-API.
