Hello @smonge 

Are you talking about a template that pre-fills the new issue when you are creating it? If so, where did you find the Product Requirements template?

Or are you talking about general guidance on what should be included in a User Story?

Hello @smonge ,

we found in the browser add on (not Jira addon) "Jira Template Injector" a very useful extension to Chrome (should also work with Edge). It allows you to define for each issue type an own template text which is provided in Jira issue description at the creation dialog.

Be aware, it only works on Jira Server/Data Center edition in the text mode.

I´ve see other Jira user using the app "Script runner" to create/prefill issue text at the issue creation. But his need some "development" effort.

Best Regards, Bernhard

Hi @smonge 


Templates provided in COnfluence are just guidances that follow best practice. If you do not find what you are looking for you can create your own.


Product requirement template is usually use to describe JIRA Epics and you list all user story in the Requirement section of this template. Then it's meant to be used to create JIRA Story from this table.

If it's not enough you can create your own template if you are space admin and use it to describe you stories.
