@Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__  if you have any idea could you help me please

Hi @IMENE FIRAS , I can check it but I do not have enough information. Can you share atlassian-plugin.xml, class implementing an action and template?

Hi @Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ , thanks for your answer.

Here are my files :


<webwork1 key="edit-meta-datacustomfieldwebwork" name="Edit MetaData Customfield Webwork" class="java.lang.Object">
<description key="edit-meta-datacustomfieldwebwork.description">Actions for editing Metadata customfield Configuration</description>
<action name="com.keplertechnologies.ged.modules.customfields.EditMetaDataCustomfieldConfiguration" alias="EditMetaDataCustomfieldConf">
<view name="input">/templates/edit-meta-datacustomfieldwebwork/input.vm</view>

Java class

public class EditMetaDataCustomfieldConfiguration extends JiraWebActionSupport {
String getConfiguration(){

        String configuration = meta.getConfiguration(customfieldId);

        LOG.debug("saved configuration : "+configuration);

        return configuration;



Velocity template

<input name="configAsJsonString" value="$action.getConfiguration()"  >

 and it renders  $action.getConfiguration() in the interface
