Problem Definition

Currently, the issue view screen is showing in sections and the custom fields are grouped under Details or People section. In some cases, we would like to reorder the section which is not possible in JIRA.

Suggested Solution

  • Allow the ability to reposition the section based on user's needs.

Why this is important

In some cases, customer needs to reorder the section based on the usage. For example:

  • Description section which describe the issue is preferable to place on the first section.
  • Customer links the issues a lot and it is preferable to reorder the Issue Links section, else customer has to scroll down those issue links to be able to view the regular screens.

  1. Install IssueLayout.
  2. Create a new Layout
  3. Change the position of the panels.
