I would like the issue 'Description' to be displayed above the 'Details' section when viewing an issue. I understand that I can use the 'Configure Screen' admin area to select the order of the fields people see when they are creating an issue, but not when the issue is eventually viewed.
This question has been asked before, but not answered correctlly (see https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/200578/customize-sorting-of-fields-in-issue-view)
The distinction is that now matter how I configure my screens, the order that it appears after the issue has been created is as follows:
This is counterintuitive and strange looking to see all of the details before you even see the description of the issue.
I'm using JIRA version 5.2.11
Is there any way to re-order this? Thanks in advance.
Well, it's a nice easy answer - you will need to dig into the core of Jira and change the code that arranges the panels in the view screen.
You can configure the "view" screen to some extent, but Jira will pull out all the system fields (including description) into the standard display, as well as dates and people, into their respective panels.
