Jira behaviours initialiser how to avoid "You have entered new data" window.onbeforeunload warning

Ingo Kampe Jan 11, 2016

Hi everybody,

I have implemented a default value of the description field with behaviours initialiser:

def default = "..."
def FormField descField = getFieldById("description")
if (!underlyingIssue?.description) {
	descField.setFormValue( default )
}

Is there any way to prevent the javascript window.onbeforeunload based warning popup "You have entered new data..." if a user closes the create form without entering any data?

The form should not handle the default text as user entered data.

Thanx in advance and happy new year,
inka

Unfortunately not at the moment. Although we could exempt that field from jira's dirty form checking (I presume) I'm not sure how to do it reliably, and so that you get the warning if it has been previously modified, which is why it hasn't been implemented. Is it a major issue?

Anyway, I created https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/browse/GRV-874.
