How can we add columns to the backlog view of a Scrum board

The  Backlog 'view' currently shows columns containing the summary, assignee,  issue number, priority and story points.  I would like to add more custom fields as columns here.

I know that we can add up to 3 fields in Board configuration / Card layout, but the added fields are displayed in an added row (not the same row as the default ones)

So, can we add more columns with presentation as the default columns, and can we add more than 3 additional columns?

You can add and arrange more fields in the issue detail view so when you click then you can see more details.

You can change the card colors to help your team quickly identify the cards on your board as being of a particular issue type, priority, assignee, or anything you choose.

But the field limit is only 3.




Hi Prakhar

Thanks for your reply! As I mentioned, I know that feature, but just need something more

1. More columns displayed as the default columns

2. More than 3

Is it something not supported by Jira? Any plugins can do it?

Did you ever figure this out?

Any findings on this matter yet? I am interested as well.
