Hi @Ramzi Bou Ghanem  

welcome to the community , no need to do anything rather than "start typing your summary" in this box .

Once you do that the reference text will be disappeared automatically. 


Thanks in advance

Hi @Ramzi Bou Ghanem 
Where are you getting that default text in issue summary or description ?

if you are using Jira server or data centre then check for Behaviours that is a part of script runner.

in Behaviour there must be a code added to have the default template for summary or description field.



Actually im facing this when adding the new issue under the backlog, im unable to change or erase this Screen Shot 2021-10-09 at 11.11.49 PM.png

Hi @Ramzi Bou Ghanem 

It’s just a reference text. You just need to click on it and start typing the text that you want to add as a issue summary and hit enter a new issue will be created with the summary that you typed.
