[ScriptRunner] How to hide customField with Issue Created Listener

Hello,

I just stucked at problem of hiding customField. What I am trying to do is that when you create an Issue you set some customField values. According to those value we have another ScriptedField that generates URL but we don't want to have those two next to each other so we decided to hide customField when Issue is created.

We need to have it just hidden, because of further edit. When we click edit, we still be able to edit the field, once is edited for example new label is added our scripted field generates new url, but still customField will be hidden in Details Window.

Hi Stanislav,

I think that a ScriptRunner behaviour would work better for this. 

You could add a behaviour to the customField you want to hide. Using a server-side script, you could hide the field on the create screen like this:

def customField = getFieldByName("TextFieldA")

customField.setHidden(false)

// check to see which screen you are on
if (getActionName() == "Create Issue") {
// hide field during issue creation
customField.setHidden(true)
}

Simply change the first line to match the name of the field you're trying to hide.
