color custom field using Jira cloud

How can I create a color coded custom field?

I need a single choice custom field (red, amber, green)  with the colors (red, yellow, green) as the background of the field options in Jira cloud.

There are a lot of great plugins but they are only available for Jira Server.

Unfortunately Rhian, that's the sad part with Cloud. You are limited in everything. Plugins for Cloud version are very minimal compare it to Server.

Best of luck!

So there is no solution for this problem?

I am afraid to say no, they are available for JIRA Server only.

What about some sort of script that I can run?

I know that ScriptRunner is available for  JIRA Cloud. You can try it, and send your questions to Adaptavist team. They are great!

Do you know if script runner allows you to change custom fields?

That will be a great question for the Adaptavist Team. Nic Brough can help you with that. He is with Adaptavist.

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist]Can you please assist?

I'd like yo, but your answers are right.

Cloud does not provide the hooks for things like ScriptRunner to amend things like colours in fields.  There's simply no way to do this on Cloud.

Hi Nic,

 

Is there any other solution that you could think of?

am I able to color the text using scriptrunner? red, amber (yellow), green? @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

All you can do on Cloud is use one of the coloured system fields - priority and status.

ok, thank you for your assistance
