How to add options value for the select list. I have read the documentation for adding custom field, but it still don't understand.

I go to the custom field -> add custom field -> choose select list -> enter the field name, and leave all the default value there -> finish -> choose screen -> update

I don't see where i have to add the option value.

Any help would be very appreciated, thank you

I have upgraded to JIRA 6.1.6, and use select list single choice. It solved my problem


Just to be clear for anyone who finds this question - this "answer" is wrong.

Upgrading and using a select list are completely irrelevant here.

What you mean is that you found the "configure" I pointed you to and then worked out that you needed to click "Edit Options" to get into the list of options. It's worked like this since Jira 3.0 (possibly 2, but my memory is failing me)

Go to Custom Fields, find your field, click "configure" next to it. You'll be offered a list editor

Hi Nic,

I don't see the list editor, below is screen of configure custom field
