Yes you can.
One of the ways is to customize pre-filled summary through edit of velocity templates

I think you can, at custom field context you can create a new context for each issuetype and add a default value for each of them. Give it a try,

See this link for more details

Thanks Rahul-

But I was referring to the "summary" field- could not find the answer in the link you sent sad

any other ideas?

There is a lot of discussion around this topic. See this link

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-4812 

Also some workarounds suggested with some plugins. Please see comments sections.

I have created different values in the "Summary" field for different "Issue Type"s with  https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-set-default-value-for-summary-field-in-jira-800692650.html and it works OK, BUT THERE IS A BUG-

when I press the "Create" the value in the "Summary" field is as I configured, but when I change the "Issue Type" the default value does not change to the proper value that I have configured.

 

Any ideas how I can solve this?
