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! Checkbox are limited to 55 entries but I would require hundreds for a project. Any idea how to get there? (we already use labels for another purpose)

Hi @Christian Giroux

I went through several community posts and the solutions that I found for next-gen components were checkbox fields, labels, or using automation for Jira for custom assignees.

Because I didn't find any other solution and the improvement ticket to introduce components to next-gen is open since February 2019 there wasn't another option for our team other than to build this functionality in our component management plugin.

You can read more about workarounds for next-gen components and their limitations in this community article 👉 How to create Components in team-managed (former Next-gen) projects 

Let me know if you have any other ideas on how to manage components in Next-gen and I'll include them in the article.



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.

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:

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:
