Can someone please advise which file to edit to restrict the size of a custom field?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to Change the Size of Text Area Custom Field

How can we reduce the size of a custom field of type Text Field (Multi Line).

We need to restrict the size to 30 characters.

 

Thanks

Vinay

It may have moved between versions, but the file name has been consistent - look for edit-textarea.vm

Hi Nic,

 

If I am not wrong, we need to add below content in edit-textarea.vm file right?

 

#controlHeader ($action $customField.id $customField.name $fieldLayoutItem.required $displayParameters.noHeader)

#if ($!customField.id=="customfield_10220")
## setup some additional parameters
$!rendererParams.put("rows", "2")
$!rendererParams.put("cols", "40")
$!rendererParams.put("wrap", "virtual")

## let the renderer display the edit component
$rendererDescriptor.getEditVM($!value,
$!issue.key, $!fieldLayoutItem.rendererType, $!customField.id,
$!customField.name, $rendererParams, false)

#elseif ($!customField.isRenderable() && $rendererDescriptor)

## setup some additional parameters
$!rendererParams.put("rows", "2")
$!rendererParams.put("cols", "40")
$!rendererParams.put("wrap", "virtual")

## let the renderer display the edit component
$rendererDescriptor.getEditVM($!value,
$!issue.key, $!fieldLayoutItem.rendererType, $!customField.id,
$!customField.name, $rendererParams, false)

#else

<textarea name="$customField.id"
id="$customField.id"
class="textfield"
rows="4" cols="40" wrap="virtual"
>$textutils.htmlEncode($!value)</textarea>
#end

#controlFooter ($action $fieldLayoutItem.fieldDescription $displayParameters.noHeader)

That looks right to me

Where we need to specify the size of the field? ie 30 characters

Just add the html maxlength attribute

If you don't mind can you give the attribute and in which line to add it?

Er, you need to understand the html changes you are making for yourself.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
