To configure a Checklist, perform the following steps:
Navigate to Settings > Add-ons > Checklist Definitions.
Go to the Preferences section.
Enable or disable the available preference check boxes. For more information on the available options, refer to the following table:
Strike out completed items
Applies a strikethrough effect on the text of the checked items.
Emphasize mandatory items
Displays an asterisk (*) at the end of the mandatory items for easy identification.
Allow items to have statuses
Allows you to to add statuses to items. If you disable this preference, the system disables the status drop-down menu so that a status cannot be assigned. If an item had status, the system preserves such values but are not shown to the user. If this preference is enabled at a later time, the status reappears.
Allow issue to have local items
Allows you to add local items directly to the issue. Global items are shown and it is possible to add statuses and select/clear such items.
Sync with custom field
Allows you to create a new custom field in your JIRA instance. The system syncs the status of the Checklist with the custom field. This custom field can then be used to prevent a workflow transition or to simply display the Checklist's status in an Agile Board's card.
