SLA PowerBox - On Time Service Delivery plugin extends the range of JIRA custom fields. Custom fields are optional in JIRA and are divided into two groups: standard and advanced. The SLA Metric field is an advanced custom field.

- Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators global permission.
Choose > Issues. Select Fields > Custom Fields to open the Custom Fields page.
Tip: Use a Keyboard shortcut: g + g + start typing custom fields
