So in effect it cannot be done easily from the user interface, you need to write some javascript to get it put in there is that correct?

Thanks Harry,

If i did not need to decipher between bugs and just wanted to make the blanket change, how could I do this without using javascript.

Cheers

Since you need to determine if it's a bug or not and not simply apply it to all cases, you'll need Javascript.

Hi Shane,

If you want to avoid Javascript I would avoid the Description field. It isn't a customfield and doesn't allow setting default value as such.

You can create a custom field to do this instead. Give it a different name and add it to the screens. Otherwise Javascript would be the closest option.

Thanks All,

I will try using a custom field instead and see how that goes.

Regards

Shane

Hi Shane,

you can use Post Function on transition to update Description field value, but I don't know how to demarcate only for Bugs.
