Notes column allows you to add arbitrary text to items in a structure, without having to create custom fields in JIRA.

The typical use case for Notes column is storing some additional information about the item's status and use it in a report.

The values in the Notes columns are per-structure, per-item. This means that:

  • Text entered as Notes for some issue in one structure will not be seen for that issue in another structure. You may have different notes for the same issue in different structures.
  • If an item occurs several times in a structure, they will have the same value in the Notes column, similar to the issue's fields.

Permissions

The user might have permissions to edit notes even if he or she does not have permissions to edit the issue.

The data stored in the Notes column is considered to be a property of the selected structure. That has the following effect on the permissions.

Who can view notes?

To be able to see the notes, the user needs to have:

  • View access to the structure that stores the notes.
  • View access to the item (issue, project, etc.)

Who can edit notes?

To be able to edit the notes, the user needs to have:

  • Edit access to the structure that stores the notes.
  • View access to the item (issue, project, etc.)

Note that this allows you to create your own structure and leave notes for some issues that you can't edit.
