Can I create a custom field like the Description field?

Hi:

 

I'm looking for the ability to create a JIRA custom field that allows for markup like the Description field. Maybe an add-on?

It's built in.

Admin -> Custom fields -> add -> unlimited text

You may need to adjust the "field configuration" though - change the "renderer" to markup.

Hi there, 

i am having the some request, but i can't find the unlimited text option in the new Jira UI..

Is there any other way to do that?

 

Thanks!

It hasn't moved.  You log in as an admin, go to the admin interface, select issues then custom fields and click add, which will ask you what type of field you want.

I manage to do it but by changing the renderer to Wiki Style of the new multi-line renderer as shown in the screenshots
