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 

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 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?



What did you changed in the script from the link to specify the defualt value per issue type?

Roniz, I would welcome your response as well. What did you change the .value ="<Default Value For Summary> line to, to display the Issue Type value?

@uri shech, @N Grant- I could not fix the bug I encountered, so I did not use it and erased it- I am sorry, but cant remember how it was :(
