How to edit the fields that show up in the sidebar edit panel

If I am in one of my boards and I click on a task a sidebar edit panel comes up on the right hand side with a subsection of the tasks properties that you can quickly edit. However we don't have priority in here and I would like it but for the life of me I can't figure out what that panel is referred to or how to edit what gets displayed on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's now called "Issue Layout" and you can have different layouts for different Issue Types. That is for the Right Panel in the Issue View Page. For the right panel in the "backlog" view, under board settings you still have the Issue Detail View option.

I have 2 issue screen schemes set up--default and defect. But the side panels in both the backlog and the active sprint only use the default scheme, so the issues that use the defect scheme don't display the custom fields in the sidebars.

+1, "Issue Details View" removed

Dear @Colin Fischer,

go to the agile boards configuration. There is a tab (Issue Detail View) where you can select by drag and drop which fields to display. Even the order can be set.

I don't have "Issue Detail View" tab in my board configuration. How can I bring it back?

I have the same issue, the "Issue Details View" option in the board configuration was removed with the new Jira design overhaul.

Hello @Thomas Deiler , Can the issue layout be set globally or as a default going forward with new jira projects?
