Boost your Jira field customisation power

Expand the standard field configuration options with additional settings and ‘if-then’ conditions. Define how Jira fields should behave based on project or issue types for better control and an improved user experience.

Set rules that reinforce your business processes

Apply additional field requirements or restrictions to guide users and keep Jira aligned with your work practices. Hide/show fields only to people in a specified role. Automatically assign issues based on priority level.

Add structure using contextual information

Enable teams to create and edit issues more efficiently while including all relevant information. Change field name, add helper text or set pre-filled templates. Configure behaviours on the Create View and Issue View.

Behaviours delivers a brand new boost to your Jira customisation power, allowing to conditionally change how fields behave when creating or editing an issue, under a specific project or issue type.

  • Pre-fill/pre-format a template so users can easily follow it.
  • Change name or description that is displayed for a field.
  • Hide/show a supported field only to users in a specific role.
  • Set field value based on another supported field.
  • Create conditions based on issue type.
