I've updated the description of a custom field multiple times, but the most recent updated verbiage is not showing up in our Jira tickets. Am I missing step to force these updates to "publish" somehow?
There is a bug in Jira that won't do the update through the normal process. You need to edit the Field Configuration used by that project and update the Description there. That overrides the standard Description that comes with the field.
@Brad Lackey , apart from the custom field's configuration, do look at the relevant field configuration (from the project's field configuration scheme) and look at he field's description there as well.
the field's description in the field configuration overrides the field's global description value.
