Is it possible to edit the "browse" screen layout?
I successfully have edited the screens/screen schemes/screen scheme mappings/screen issue type mappings-yadda-yadda, and get the desired result for edit for the project/issue type/operation mapping I want.
However, the basic browse view remains unchanged.
I e what is displayed when you go to: http://your.jira.URL/browse/<YOURISSUE TYPE>
So, how do I change the fields and order of fields for this screen?
OK, I interpret this as the following answers to my specific question:
No: There are no features in Jira that allow users to modify the layout and fields in the "browse view" - except: Custom fields are displayed if there is value in them and the order follows what you define for the edit screen.
Is that a reasonable interpretation of your reply?
Yes. I used to maintain modifications like that in multiple products and it can become a real pain and make upgrading a long process, especially if the vendor makes changes to the basice code design. Most of these grew from people wanting to tweek something to be more like another product, not adding real value. The users will get used to the layout. It may not be perfect, but that is one of the compromises when you choose a COTS product.
Not quite. You can re-arrange the vertical order of fields in the "custom fields" area. But other than that, yes, you've paraphrased my answer correctly.
Like Joe, I strongly recommend not messing around with the interface. It's hard work to implement and an utter nightmare to maintain, and all you're really doing is cosmetic tweaks that generally add little or nothing. Most users will quickly get used to the layout and be perfectly happy with it once they get used to just how much is there.
I find the description box too small (pasted screenshots "seem-to-be" cropped); and even though I can resize it vertically, I cannot resize it horizontally.
I believe that if I was able to have one column, instead of two (second column includes the "user", "dates" and "time tracking" sections), would be more convenient for my users.
From, what I understand from this thread, is that the only way to do this, is by changing the code or installing a plugin (if it exists) and cannot be done through configuration.
Am I correct?
