Create a New Field Configuration

Go to Field Configuration > + Add ExtensionField

Add Extension Field Button

Select the desired configuration type.

Select configuration type

The configuration process mirrors that of the main application fields. Refer to our main application documentation for Search Fields. Below, we highlight the key differences for the extension field.

Extension Field Differences:

  • Extension fields are tied to their respective custom field types.

  • You manage the appearance of extension fields within Jira like any other custom field, without configuring context or display conditions in the apps field configuration.

Assign Configuration to custom field

Under Target Jira Field select the custom field that you have created in the first step of this guide.
