You can add a "multi line text field" and make sure the renderer is set to rich text in the field configuration.

Hi Nic, Thanks for your answer. where can i configure renderer for the field. i could not find it while creating a new custom field.

Please help.


It's in the field configuration for the project, not the custom field list (sounds counter-intuitive, but it allows the renderers to be set differently by project/issue-type)

You can create a script field via ScriptRunner to collect values from other fields.
