finally it worked by using webresource as

<web-resource key="test-js" name="javascript">
		<resource name="test.js" type="download" location="templates/js/test.js" />

test.js looks like

JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {

Hi Prasad,

Could you please let us know where to put this script ?



But you seem to know this already judging by your answer here: - so maybe I misunderstood.

Yes , but i stuck in how to make it work :(

Hey everybody,

I got the same problem as rambanam prasad

Where should I put the web-resource?

And where should be the test.js? Is the js-file in the Atlassian Directory?

Can anybody give me a detailed instruction please.

Thank you very very much!



web resource module can be add to any existing custom plugin or you can develop new one

you have to add the web resource module in atlassian-pluginn.xml and test.js should be in resorces/templetes/js

*js is a folder and it is optional

Thank you for your answer.

I haven t developed any plugin. I have written some javascript code in the description field in the fieldconfiguration (so I can t find the atlassian-plugin.xml?!).

Now when I change the issuetype (so I change the fieldconfiguration because the other issuetype has another configuration) the javascript doesn t work.

Is it possible to handle this??

Thank you very much!



Yes, you can handle but the problem is you have to add the javascript in all field configuration but is not suggestible so the best way is using plugin.

It is easy to develop plugin and you can add it in any one of your own plugins

How would you do this ondemand?

Hello Matthias,

are you german?

We have the same problem. Did you fix it? And how?

Best regards


Instead of creating a custom plugin for this, I just added the javascript to the Announcement Banner.  That worked for me in version 5.2.11.
