Grid configuration includes general information such as name, description, field context, and a configuration block with 3 tabs, each responsible for a specific part of the configuration:

  1. Сolumns 
  2. General Settings
  3. Data Source
  4. Default value

By default, the grid is already pre-configured with some basic columns. You can add your columns to the grid and remove or edit existing ones.


You can add and manage grid columns under this tab.

General setting

 The grid configuration includes general settings tab. It helps you to customize the grid's general appearance and preview changes on the go.

 Grid height is px

The height of a grid, visible on an issue view. By default, it's set to 385px and you can adapt it to your needs. 

You can also set the size to adjust automatically depending on the number of the added rows. In that case, the height specified would be considered as the maximum height.

The preview block below the settings shows how the grid looks with the specified height.

Row height in lines (1 line = 35px)

You can set custom row height for a grid, measured in lines. One line is 35px height.

Data sources

You can configure previously added web data sources under this tab. More details.

Default value

You can add default values to the grid using one of the following ways: 

Using grid configuration page

  1. Select Add-ons in your Jira Settings
  2. Locate Table Grid admin menu
  3. Navigate to the Grids tab
  4. Select desired grid to edit 
  5. Add Grid default value in the corresponding section

Using Grid Custom Field configuration 

  1. Select Issues in your Jira settings

  2. Click Custom Fields in the Fields section

  3. Find the grid custom field and Configure.
  4. Select Edit Default Value in the Default Configuration Scheme section

Grid field context

Custom field configuration schemes help you to configure multiple grid configurations.

You can add separate contexts for different issue types and projects.The custom field context is also known as custom field configuration scheme. 

Adding a new context allows you to configure one grid custom field differently for multiple combinations of issue types and projects.

A custom field can only have one context per Jira project. So you cannot have multiple contexts for different issue types in the same project.
