Is it possible to display a header for sub task section in the view-issue page for jira 5.1.x?

If you add many columns to the sub task section in view-issue page, it becomes very clumsy specially if we have multiple custom fields of the same type. Is there any way to add a header to say the name of the custom field whose value is being shown?

Put this in the announcement banner

<script type='text/javascript'>
AJS.$(document).ready(function() {


Hi Renjith,

I understand what you're trying to do here. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. $('#issuetable') strangely returns null.

Also none of the dashboards are not displayed when I put this script in the announcement banner.



Sorry Renjith, I had missed AJS. before $('#issuetable'). It works perfectly now with AJS.$('#issuetable'). Thanks a lot. Please make the change in your answer so that I can accept it.

This works but disappears when clicking to a link to a different issue. A control-refresh of the screen brings it back again.


Just wanted to say THANK YOU Renjith for this brilliant and easy to implement solution!!!

Gives us just what we need.

Why this is deemed "non essential" in JIRA I have no idea....

Thanks again!!!!

Not without changing the bundled plugin that renders the view issue page now.

Can you please provide details on which plugin to change?

jira-view-issue-plugin, I would think!
