Hello Ranganath!

In this knowledge base, you should find all the information related to custom fields:

 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AdminJIRAServer072/Configuring+a+custom+field

 

Let me summarize the information related to your question:

  • Custom field descriptions are the Help text that appears below the custom field when it is displayed.
  • Enabling HTML in custom field descriptions will allow you to enter HTML tags directly into the description if you so desire.
  • Be sure to use complete tag pairs so that the HTML content is displayed properly.

Hope that helps!

Regards
