Plugin field "Last Updated by" - How do I get it to display on a view issue screen

Susan Hauth Community Champion Jul 26, 2012

I can't remember which plugin gave me the ability to create the "Last updated by" field but I have it. I have configured it globally and added it to many View Issue screens in my JIRA projects. But it never shows up!!

However, If I specify the field in the Issue Navigator, no problem it displays in the Issue Navigator. I can also query against it so its configured for User Picker properly.

Are you seeing it in the User section along with Assignee and Reporter? What version of JIRA is it?

I'm not seeing it anywhere on the View Issue Screen but would have expected to see it in the User section. The field has been added to the Screen configuration. We are on JIRA 4.4.3.

Maybe the field only has a column view. Which plugin is it?

Yeah, that only has a column view.

I think it's JIRA toolkit, but I'm not 100% sure. I have tried googling and cannot find it. I have attached the custom field type as it shows when creating the field.

Hi all, Can you confirm me that the custom field "Last Updater" is only has a column view? Thank You

Thanks!! Sort of. Would be really nice if it had an Issue View. But at least I know it's not my configuration. I do appreciate the help.

You can also let people know that the Activity and History tabs can be sorted so the most recent change is at the top. Pretty close to a Last Update field.

@Susan Hauth- any idea where you might have found the "last updated by" plugin? I don't need to see it in 'view issue' but need to see that field in the issue navigator as you mention above.

I realize you said you don't remember which plugin it was but even a guess as to where to get said plugin would help.
