Hope, your JIRA is not in cloud.

If not, you can add a javascript in the description for the field Description in the field configuration. In the javascript you can get the field element of your custom field, verify the condition and prepopulate the field value. Please refer my answer from this.

Hi Mahesh ,

Thanks for the answer ,but my second question part , this description part has to be applied only for a selected users  in a specific Group (Posix) is this possible in JIRA ? (i.e)when a particular user for this group tries to create a bug the template should populate only for them .
