Icons for JIRA UI doesn't appear on JIRA Server 7.3

Installation for 'Icons for JIRA' add-on on JIRA Server 7.3 was successful. However, I didn't see the new UI to select the icons in Administration > Issues > Custom Fields page when I configure my custom field options.

I have also tried adding a new custom field and didn't see the new UI for icons selection.

Am I missing something with installation?

The installation was fine. The icons will appear if we create a new custom field named 'Icon Multi-Select' or 'Icon Single Select' under Advanced Field type. This, however, wasn't clear in the 'Icons for JIRA' site.

Thanks for the update Mei.


You are correct, you need to create a special custom field for these options to appear. There is currently no way to plug into the existing field so the only option was to create a new field type.


Sorry that was confusing. I'll update the listing.
