Yes You can change it.

go to this location : C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes\com\atlassian\jira\web\action\JiraWebActionSupport.properties

Edit in that file.

issue.field.summary = Summary

replace by

issue.field.summary = Title

It work definitately

Thanks

 

Hi Prashant

I want these changes only for a specific issue type i.e a BUG. When ever i create an issue with an issue type of bug, I want an auto-populated text like "this is a bug" to show up on the summary filed.

Thank you

You'll need to inject some (horrid) javascript to do that.

I would not recommend defaulting a summary, unless you really do want a vast swathe of your issues to all look indistinguishable most of the time.  The summary is there, empty and mandatory, for a very good reason.  In the handful of places where I've seen this done, it causes problems with users complaining that the information in issues is rubbish, and we always remove it.

Thanks Nic Brough [Adaptavist] for your valuable reply.

 

Thanks Nic and Prashant
