We want to set helptext for "Description" field via behavior

Our JIRA had installed the "Script Runner" plugin.

1, We want to set helptext for "Description" field by behavior if we , the original code as below:


if(secondCategory.contains("aaaaaaaaaaaaa")){

descValue = "Request Template"
helpText= "<a href='abbbb.html'> Request Template</a>"


}

else if(secondCategory.contains("XXXXXXX")){
//description.clearHelpText()
descValue = " internal Request)"
helpText="<a href='abcd.html'> internal Request Template</a>"
}

}
description.setFormValue(descValue)
description.setHelpText(helpText)

2, According above code, if we select correct options for "Category" field, the helptext will have different value.

But, if the value of "Category"meets the first condition, the helptext works normally.

And, if we change the option(meet another condition) of "Category" field,  the value of the helptext had been set successfully(we see it in our logs), but we can't see it show on screen.

If anyone can give us some solution, thanks in advance.

Hello Meng Ge,

Your script looks almost correct to me. I wrote this script:

def secondCategory = getFieldByName("Category") // your field name here
def description = getFieldById("description")

if (secondCategory.getValue().toString().contains("AAA")) {
description.setFormValue("Request Template")
description.setHelpText("<a href='abbbb.html'> Request Template</a>")
}
else {
description.setFormValue("Interal Request")
description.setHelpText("<a href='abcd.html'> Internal Request Template</a>")
}   

This behaviour script is attached to the "Category" field, not the "Description" field.
