It looks as this custom field is configured to use the Default Text Renderer. To configure this, simply navigate to Administration » Projects » "Your project", select Fields and edit the Field Configuration for this issue type.

You'll see a "Renderer" option next to the custom field name. smile


it seems does not work custom fields. there are options only for default fields.

It's applicable for custom fields as well. You have to edit the default field configuration and change the renderer type as mentioned above

Did that - Still not working.

There are two ways to configure that. 

1. Go to general Jira settings and change renderer config. I did it and somehow id does not work.

2. Go first to your project and in project settings go to Fields configuration and there is renderer config. This way worked in my cane.
