Is it possible to use Behaviors to set help text on a Request Type?

Derek Fields Community Leader Jan 05, 2021

I want to be able to change the help text on a Request Type to provide general information based on the current user. Is this possible?

@Derek Fields, yes this would be possible. You can control help text dynamically using Behaviors.

What exactly do you want to change based on the user?

Hi @Derek Fields ,

it seems to me Script Fragments: Show a web panel will be a better choice then Behaviours.

As a location you can use: servicedesk.portal.subheader 

If you want to work with logged in user, you can get him like this (in the Provider class/script section):

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
