After adding a new column it does not appear in the Jira issue navigator
After adding a new column in the issue navigator as per Configuring issue table columns, it does not appear when performing a search.
This may be the expected behaviour, as some custom fields are restricted to a certain Issue Type, or if they are project-specific as detailed in the troubleshooting section of Configuring issue table columns.
A successful workaround regarding this behaviour is using the
'!=' argument on an unrelated issue-type. To do this:
- Identify an issue type not currently in use for your project, alternatively create a new issue-type for this specific purpose.
Generate your original query using Advanced searching and add the following:
issuetype != <issuetype not in use>
The query results will contain the selected Issue Navigator custom-field column alongside all other issue types. This workaround also continues to work for the exporting of the document.
- Restrict your search.
- Project-specific custom fields: The added column will appear if the search returns only issues that belong to that project.
- Issue Type-specific custom fields: The added column will appear if the search returns only issues that belong to that issue type.
