Use custom field on the issue

This page describes how to use multilevel select custom field
The multilevel select custom field looks the same as the regular Jira select. Depending on which screen the Jira administrator added this custom field to, a Jira user can enter a value on the Create issue screen and on the View issue screen.

If you want to display this field in the left area, change its position in the configuration: Project settings > Issue layout. You can also create a tab on the screen and move this field there. It's configurable in the Project settings > Screens.
