Jira Structure - Add a column as formula, Change color of text + background

Hi folks,

I'm building a structure in Jira and I don't like the color of the status because there is only 3 color and we have 5 status. 

So I want to add a column with the status.


MY WISH: I want to

  • give a specific color to each status -> background color
  • Put the writing in white 



IF(status= "To do" ;"{panel:bgColor=#515A5A} {color=#FFFFFF}TO DO{color} {panel};

status= "Ready" ;"{panel:bgColor=#DCDCDC}{color:#FFFFFF}READY{color}{panel}";

status= "In progress" ;"{panel:color=#FFFFFF|bgColor=#CD853F}IN PROGRESS{panel}";

status= "Verify" ;"{panel:color=#FFFFFF|bgColor=#191970}VERIFY{panel}";

status= "Done" ;"{panel:color=#FFFFFF|bgColor=#228B22}DONE{panel}"


What would be the rignt code ?

Hello Gaetan,

The formula looks correct, you just need to change the column's Format from General to Wiki markup.

I hope this helps! Please feel free to contact us directly at if you need our assistance with anything else.

Best regards,
