Show component inline with backlog

Hi all, 


I cant figure out how to get the "component" to show inline in my backlog.


The component is created, I went to edit the board layout. I can get the "component" to show if I do a "card layout", but it puts the component on the second line. i don't want that.

I want it to show up like a label so visually its easier to sort items by "component" as I drag and drop items in the backlog. Like the last image where the "epic" is highlighted

Hi @Abe,

Go to the the Board Settings > Card layout > Under the Backlog Section add the Components field. Go back to your board and you should see Components on your issues in the Backlog view.

Hope this helps

Hi Danny, 

I had already done that as the picture showed above but as stated it drops it onto a second line, whereas I am trying to get it to look like a label like the Epic called "Login"

Would also like to see this inline... 4 years later.

This works for me, ymmv:

.ghx-issue-compact .ghx-end.ghx-estimate {
display: flex !important;
flex-direction: row !important;
align-items: center !important;
flex-wrap: nowrap !important;
.ghx-issue-compact .ghx-end.ghx-estimate > .ghx-avatar-img {
line-height: initial;
margin-top: 0 !important;
font-size: initial;
.ghx-agile .aui-label.ghx-label {
display: flex;
flex-wrap: nowrap;
align-items: center;
margin: 0 5px;
.ghx-issue-compact .ghx-row:first-child {
margin: 0 !important;
display: flex !important;
align-items: center !important;
flex-grow: 1 !important;

You guys at Atlassian give up a bit too easy sometimes.   Low votes doesn't mean you can't spend an hour on some CSS improvements. :-/

@Dan Dumont Did you get this working? Only on the browser side not for all users?

Browser only, using a chrome extension that lets me inject custom css.

There may be a place to dump css overrides on the page, I don't have access to admin my instance.

Hello @Abe

I was looking into implementing this behaviour this morning, but it seems it's not possible and due to low votes Atlassian has turned down this request

terrible support

For anyone arriving at this question in 2023, the below works for me with a CSS browser extension:

.ghx-issue-content {
display: flex !important;
justify-content: space-between;

.ghx-row.ghx-end.ghx-items-container {
display: flex !important;
position: initial !important;
order: 3;
height: auto;

.ghx-extra-field {
background-color: var(--ds-background-accent-green-bolder,#00875a);
border: 1px solid var(--ds-border, #00875a);
color: var(--ds-text-inverse,#fff);
border-radius: 3px;
border-top-left-radius: 3px;
border-top-right-radius: 3px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 3px;
border-bottom-left-radius: 3px;
display: inline-block;
margin: 0;
padding: 2px 5px;
text-align: center;
text-decoration: none;
Font-size: 14px;
line-height: 14px;
Font-weight: Normal;
text-transform: none;

.ghx-fa {
background: var(--ds-background-selected, #ccc);
border: 1px solid var(--ds-border, #ccc);
color: var(--ds-text, #333);

.ghx-row.ghx-plan-main-fields {
flex-grow: 2;

This turns the components into a similar design as Epics. Without some custom JS there is no way to colour code them so have made them a single colour for now
