How to make the Issue navigator as the default view for project issues? Edited

1- configured the scrum board such that it has Status and Story Points fields

2- when browsing the backlog: the custom fields are not shown.

3- when clicking "view in Issue navigator" from the drop down menu which is activated by a right click on an issue, these fields appear in the Issue navigator.

My question: how to make this Issue navigator(with the custom fields) as the default view that appears when I click backlog icon?

Hi @Refaat Mohamed 

You can add field to backlog car layout by bringing board configuration:

then go to card layout and add your fields to backlog card layout:


You can also add a quick link to any pages (include issue navigator) from your board view, via this button:


Thank you @Ansar Rezaei for your answer.

I have done the steps as you described. However, still not what I am looking for in the backlog view.

Probably a couple of screenshots might help in explaining my question.

Here is the backlog view:backlog_view.png

As you can see, it does not have the story points field. Even the status is shown below the story name, not as a field.


Although the issue navigator looks exactly as I want it:


Here is my board configuration:


Thank you so much for your time.

As you see in the pictures, The status added to your backlog view. Please add a value for the DM-1 story point, then check it again on your backlog. The story point is a built-in Jira field and It already exists on your backlog if it has value

Thanks, that makes sense.

I have another issue now, that might resolve this one as well!

I configured my screen as follows:


As can be seen, Story Points field is added.

However, when editing the issue, the Story Points does not show up.


It may be because you use different screens for the Edit screen. Check the project Screen Scheme to be sure you add story point to all appropriate screens

Hi Ansar,

I received you note regarding accepting the answer, but couldn't reply through the email.

P.S. I'll delete(modify) this comment before accepting the answer, when time comes!

Basically, I didn't accept the answer yet, because my issue has not been resolved. Honestly, I am not sure which configuration still needs some modifications. 

The very basic question is: how make the backlog view looks like the following with all these detailed fields; which is the Issue Navigator view:



The current backlog view as follows, so I can sort it in any way. I mean the column headers are not there:



Is it the project settings, is it the board configuration, the screen configuration, I don't know. I am trying everything I can from my side, but not resolved yet.

I really appreciate every effort you are putting in helping me.

Hi @Refaat Mohamed 

As far as I know, You cant change the backlog layout to looks like the issue navigator. If you need more filtering capabilities via backlog checkout Agile Tools & Filters for Jira Software plugin, Maybe it works.image.png
