Is it possible to edit linked issues tab?

Currently linked issue tab looks like this:

Linked Issues

I'd like to add a textual description for the status column, right next to the icon. In this case: Open, Open and Closed.

I know that I can edit columns that are visible there by editing "jira.view.issue.links.sort.order" in the general configuration. However the column I am interested in is already there and it has the same name that "jira.table.cols.subtasks" has (status). In subtask table there is a textual name displayed though.

Any suggestions?

So editing it isn't possible then. Ok, plan B - time to make a custom field that will show what I want and add that there instead :)

Edit: Ok, that won't work either - there is a limitation: "Only the following fields are allowed: type,status,priority,key,resolution".. Javascript it is :P


Hi Andris, Renjith,

Check out our recently released Issue Matrix plug-in -- it will help displaying not just system fields but any custom field for sub-tasks or linked issues. It also allows for flexible configuration per issue type or project. See more on its functionality here: and let us know in case you need any support. The attachment shows example how linked issue panel can be improved using Issue Matrix.
