I'm using GH 5.6.8 with JIRA 4.3.4. We want to add the 'description' field to one of the issues as part of the issue creation using GH. As we're writing the story, the developers are entering their acceptance criteria for the story in this field. If we can get this field to display, it would make the developer's job easy (less clicks) to add the acceptance test to the story.
You can add Description field to the GH Add Card screen by configuring your Card Styles. Simply add Description field to Card View for the issue type you'd like to include this field in. The fields on the 'new card' dialog will be the same as what you configure in Card View.
Card Styles can be configured in JIRA Admin for all GH enabled projects. If you only want to add Description to a particular project, you can do that by selecting the Tools | Configuration menu when you are in that GH project.
Danielle, I thought that should work too. I did what you said, and I see that the field is on the card but when I go to the project to see the changes, I don't see any change.
As I was typing this, I remembered that we haven't 'bounced' the JIRA server. Do need to restart the server in order to see the changes?
This is what I did: Administration tab -> Greenhopper (side tab) -> Project Templates. On this page, I went to the "card view" to add the field that i want on the GH card. Selected the desired field in the field name and used the apply to all issues button. I want to see the long description on all issue cards in GH. Go to the "Agile" tab and in either the Planning board view or the Task Board view, the changes are not applied.
It doesn't seem like you can remove project level GH configurations. The good news is any new project you add going forward should pick up the updated general GH configurations. For existing projects, you may have to go through the project level configuration project by project.
