How to configure jira to show the "definition of done" field in rapidView?

When working on my daily task list, or even during sprint planning, the "definition of done" field is constantly accessed. 

But currently, in the "active sprints" view we must click on a story, then edit it, to see that field.

Is there a way to choose the fields that are displayed on the right side of the "active sprints" view when we click on a story? Some of them are useless to my work too.

(the topic configure RapidView trough API doesn't seem to be the solution.

Found it: While in the "active sprints" view, click on the "board" drop down > board configuration > Issue Detail View > General Fields > add DoD


I am unable to see the "Defnition of Done" in the drop down list in the General Fields. Am i missing something? 



Gabriel was using a "definition of done" field on issues.  Do you have a "definition of done" field on issues, or are you talking about the definition of done that has been added to Jira software's boards recently?

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] can you please refer me to that new addition of Definition of Done? Seems that there are add ons by third parties only, I wonder if Jira has the field disabled so the only thing is I need to go and enable it. Thanks in advance.

Jira does not have standard (built-in) Definition of Done field. 

You can create a custom field with that name though, and next in order to see Definition of Done field in the issue preview (right side panel in Agile board):

There are also add-ons available that provide Definition of Done functionality, e.g. in the form of Checklist that must be marked completely to allow issue transition to another status. 

My company offers such add-on for Jira Cloud: Issue Checklist
I'm happy to provide more information and answer all the questions if needed.
