Creating Description Context for different Issue Types


I am starting to use the Description Default context but have run into an issue where I want a different Default Description for different issue types with the same project.  

I have notices that if a default Description for a story is defined in one context but want to have a different context for the same project for a Bug.  The second context will not allow for the project to be selected in the second context. 

Currently using Scriptrunner Behavior to work around this issue but would prefer to use the build in context for JIRA.

Hi @Brian Taylor

Unfortunately, the context cannot be set per issue type in a single project.  This is a known issue.  

You will have to use Scriptrunner or other plugins.



I have scriptrunner as well was hoping to be able to replace scriptrunner with the context.  Looks like have to use a combination of both for the tie being
