Custom Field Format in create issue screen



I have created a custom field so that when raising an issue you would fill the data into a table: I believe I have the correct settings as per my screenshot, however in the create issue phase, either the table is shown as in the screenshot OR, if user clicks on the on blue markup button, the table becomes read-only.

Only way is that user first create the issue and then fill-in the table, which is not desirable flow. Any suggestions? What I would wish to get is that user views an editable table in the creation phase.

This is the field configuration with "Wiki Style Renderer" activated:

This is how the field appear when creating a new issue:

And this is how it looks once the issue is created: the table can be edited in the "nice" table format

Hi @Daniele Gianetti , 


Once the issue is in the create screen you can use the blue button to see how it will looks life after the creation

However, it's just for review. 

If you need to edit it, then you have to fill up the information in the format, which is set as default value:

I hope this will be useful for you!

Thank you @Magdalena Zhisheva , if I understood correctly, my wish cannot be fulfilled as the editing in the "create" phase can only happen using the raw data, not formatted, which is not so handy for requestors, especially if many lines must be added.

OK, I'll live with that :-) Thank you again!


@Daniele Gianetti I was also searching for similar solution and my results are the ones, mentioned above :) 

Wish you all the best!
