The "Due Date" field is not appearing when you create, view, or edit an issue.


tip/resting Created with Sketch.

Notice that the due date appears in small letters next to the create and resolved dates (JIRA 4.0 and earlier) and in the dates section (JIRA 4.1 and later).

Check the following things to determine the cause of the missing field:

  1. Ensure that in the project's permission scheme, you have given the permission Schedule Issues.
  2. Check what Field Configuration Scheme the project is using. Inspect the specific Field Configuration for the issue type in question. See if the field Due Date is currently in a hidden state. If so, click Show to unhide it.
  3. Check which screens your project is using. Ensure that you've placed "Due Date" on the proper screens.
