Checklist not displaying in Create issue page (Jira Cloud)

We're trying to include an Acceptance Criteria checklist in the Create screen so the author can document the acceptance criteria at the same time as he or she creates the story. However, we can't seem to get the checklist to display there.

Once the issue is created, the checklist is visible from the backlog and within the issues list for the project. That part is not a problem. 

Please let me know if there is a way to configure the checklist to show up in the Create screen. 

Thanks!

Hi Dana,

It's unfortunately impossible to do so due to Atlassian restrictions. You see, Atlassian doesn't allow cloud add-on vendors to create specific customfields and only customfields can be displayed in the create dialog.  So it's unfortunately impossible to embed the Checklist in the issue create dialogue.

Sorry

Thanks for the quick reply. I hope the Jira team will make this enhancement in the near future.
