Where is 'Components` field in new Jira experience?

I have created a new project recently and I am missing quite a few features that I have in previously create projects.

The main feature I am looking for is the Components.

The older project has all this options:

While the new one only have these:

Are Components deprecated?

When utilizing Next-gen projects, we added a "Checkbox" field with Options to simulate the same functionality as what existed as "Components" in Classic Jira.
Hope that helps!

Did you succeed in filtering by Component? I tried the same thing but a tooltip said that the filtering could not be done by Component for that project. 

This is a workaround, not a solution

Hi Eloy,

The components appear only on Classic projects. The project that you created that has fewer features are next-gen projects.
Please, check our documentation for more details about next-gen projects and let us know if you have any other question:

- Everything you want to know about next-gen projects in Jira Cloud
- Manage and administer next-gen projects


Hi Angelica,


I added a check box field in my Epic issue type to simulate a "Component" to group my Epics. Can you please tell me how I can filter my check box options?




Hi Richard,

Currently, it's possible only to filter by Label, Epic and Type on next-gen projects.
We have a feature request suggesting the ability to create quick filters:

I had the same question regarding components, but as per Nilesh's comment and my findings it appears you create your own customer field and call it components.
