Legacy Form Builder Overview

The ProForma form builder allows you to use three elements – questions, sections and information areas – to create form templates that collect and structure information in Jira. Add these elements to a form by clicking the + Buttons at the top of the form builder.


Questions allow you to collect process-specific information from users without requiring custom fields. ProForma supports a variety of question types, each with different validation options. 

When you create a question in the form builder, a box will display allowing you to choose the question type and set the question properties. 


Sections allow you to organize your form. A section contains the questions beneath it. You can use conditional logic to dynamically show or hide form sections depending on a user's response to a previous question.

Information Areas

Information areas allow you to provide instructions, disclaimers and supplementary text to your form, wherever needed. You can use raw HTML to add rich text formatting, links and images to information areas.

Note that if the Allow HTML setting on the Configure page is not enabled, you will not have the option of including Information Areas in your form.
