Learn how to access the Field Editor.

Accessing Field Editor

As a normal Jira user you can edit customfield options using the Field Editor. Before you can use the Field Editor, your Jira Administrator has to grant you permissions on the desired customfields. To access the Field Editor, follow the steps below:

  • Select in the Jira top navigation bar Issues > Field Editor.

  • The App page will appear. Click in the side navigation on the left on Field Editor

Note: If your Jira administrator has not yet granted you permissions, you can't see any content in the Field Editor. Ask your Jira administrator to grant you permissions for your desired customfield. Also note that only supported field types can be edited via the app.
