I would like to customize the subtask swimlane Edited


I would like to bring the little more information in the sub task swim-lane apart from Key,Task Name and Status. I would like to see one customized filed called task Estimate as well on the screen

Would that be possible ?

Please find the screen shot what I am looking for . in red  colour Screen Shot 2020-02-05 at 16.25.43.png

Hello @unnikrishnan_kotharamban

Thank you for reaching out.

The columns displayed in the sub-task list of the parent issue view can be edited by updating the parameter jira.table.cols.subtasks under Jira settings > System > General Configuration > Advanced Settings:

Unfortunately, the steps above only works in the old issue view, since it was not implemented in the new issue view yet (See JRACLOUD-70206). Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.

Per your description, I believe the Task Estimate is a custom field. Is that correct?

If that's the case, you can do the following steps to add the field as a sub-task column in the parent issues:

1 - Navigate to Jira Settings > Issues > Custom fields > Find the custom field > Edit details.

2 - In the URL of your browser, collect the number after the id and add the prefix "customfield_".

3 - Navigate to Jira settings > System > General Configuration > Advanced Settings and add the value to the jira.table.cols.subtasks parameter:

4 - Turn off the new issue view by Clicking in your profile picture in the left bottom corner > Settings > Scroll down to the lab features.
