I'm not a JIRA admin, so I don't have access to do any changes. The JIRA admin thinks we need a plugin to achieve what I want, but I'm not so sure.
According to this tutorial, it's very simple to create a custom field (text box). But showing it like we show description is a according the the JIRA admin not possible without a plugin.
Is it possible, out of the box, to show custom fields like we show description and issue links / comments?
Following Charlie Misonne's suggestion, we only get this. The custom field becomes a part of the Details section. We want this custom field to be a custom editable section like shown on the pic below.

Can this be done following Vitaliy's suggestion?
Issue type screen scheme define what screens are used in "Create", "Edit" and "View" modes (its possible to use the same screen).
Screen you've provided seems to be "View" screen.
JIRA Admin can add desired custom field to this screen. The most convenient way is to use Admin helper: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/jira-admin-helper-802593078.html
Note: JIRA shows Description placeholder even when there is no description (it is blank). Any blank custom field will not be shown. I doubt if any plugin can override this behavior.
Since 2016, no answer was given ?
Is it possible now, 4 years later, with all updates done ?
To be clear :
- We have added custom fields but they appear under Detail header.
- We would like custom fields in separate headers, like Detail, Description...
Exemple of a Issue View:
- Header Detail with all default fields
- Header Description_1 (to be renamed) with wiki multi-lines text field
- Header Description_2 (to be renamed) with wiki multi-lines text field
- and so one
I'm using Jira Software/Core 8.5.1
Despite this is marked as "Solved", I spent quite a few hours trying to understand how to fix this.
You need to create a Text Field, and convert it to WIKI style text render. This way you will be able to post URL.
Here is 5 minute video which I have created on how to do this.
I hope it helps.
