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.

I am using JIRA Cloud, I dont see any option of "Formula" how can I do it? 

Hi again, @Peyush Agarwal. As I mentioned in your related post, currently the Formula column is not available in the cloud edition of Structure.

The team is working hard to establish parity between the on-prem and cloud editions of Structure and ALM Works also publishes the roadmaps for its products.

In your case, you can monitor the roadmap for Structure Cloud and ask to be notified about the availability of particular new features via
