I have created a custom field called "Customer" and am using this across several projects in my jira cloud instance. It is a label type field, so if someone has written a new Customer name it can be reused across the projects.
When I created the field I also added a description: "Begin typing to find and create Customer or press down to select a suggestion." quite similar to the ordinary "label" description: "Begin typing to find and create labels or press down to select a suggested label."
The problem I have now is that since some time back I have double descriptions all of a sudden! It was not like this in the beginning when I configured the screens in the first place a year back. I can't tell when it started to show up, and I have tried to hunt all field configurations down to find where the "original" text appears, but I can't find it!!
This is annoying and looks bad, see picture:
This field is heavily used, so I can't re-create it without loosing important data.
How do I get rid of the first sentence? Where can I look more?
I tried also to empty the description in the field configurations used to only have the "label" description showing to not have a double line, but when I empty the description field (like deleting or have just a space as description) the text "Begin typing to find and create Customer or press down to select a suggestion." keeps popping up AGAIN!
I tried with that; I cannot leave it empty. If I update the description in the project specific field configuration with no text (either just remove the text completely so description is empty or add a single whitespace), the
"Begin typing to find and create Customer or press down to select a suggestion."
is appearing again in the description field.
Hi @Ingo Mohr
I create a support issue but not sure they are visible for everyone except me. But the answer I got was that is it not possible to remove the text on custom fields. A workaround would be to change my text to "Each label is created using the Customer name" then the full description of the field would be:
"Begin typing to find and create labels or press down to select a suggested label. Each label is created using the Customer's name."
There is an improvement that you can vote for here as well JRACLOUD-45529.
Have a nice day! :)
Thank you @Madelen Smedenteg for sharing the issue link and the update! :)
I added myself as both watcher and voter - and people who read this discussion entry can do that too, now. :)
(In that issue (which is for Cloud) there's an issue link for Jira Server, too)
Have a great day!
