Show all components while editing an issue in JIRA


Since version 6.1 not all components are displayed in editing mode of an issue. Is there a way to configure JIRA displaying all components and navigating through a scrollpane?

It would be nice to have possiblity to group components and adding sub-components. Does anyone know a plugin providing this feature?

1# In plain Jira, this is not possible. See there is a work-around mentioned in the issue I linked, using a custom-field.


and but it is not a freeware.

2# If you use GreenHopper, I believe something like this is made possible there, see

No configuration and almost no maintenance needed, and it still gets the job done.

try with other browser regarding not viewing of all componets.

Hi Bharadwaj Jannu,

Thank you for your reply. I normally use Firefox. Also by using Chrome or InternetExplorer only the first 15 components are displayed. Then something like "278 more options. Continue typing ..." is shown in the list.

Nevertheless I will accept your answer due to the fact that there exists plannings to support subcomponents. In this case we will be able to modify our component structure.
