I needed a field with labelling-behaviour with a custom name. Since I wouldn't change the name of the system standard field "Labels", I am using a custom field of type: label now.
The problem is, that is won't show up on the standard issue view, if it has no value.
In a nutshell: I want my custom field to behave the usual way like the field "Labels" does: showing up although and displaying "none". So it would be clickable and editable on the fly.
Any ideas, someone?
I'd ned to add a textbox and label-box to my issues and let other users to fill-in appropriate values. Yet not having them visible on view screen is quite inconvenient.
Currently we use "naming conventions" and put these information to Issue Name ... also inconvenient, but practical. Custom fields would have make it much better ...
Hi Philip, I retrieved your piece of Code. Thanks. I try to tweak it as I my scripted field should return User Picker (multiple users) and not HTML as yours. Any idea where I should start (I'm not a real programmer, just helping the team with jira because oh the holidays ;) ) thanks Julien
Basically, make the default two spaces, and then the field will always show up.
Another workaround to a silly problem.
If you are using a USERPICKER.
Create a place holder user named "Select User" (obv pick whatever name you prefer)
Set that user as the default value (https://jira.hotschedules.com/secure/admin/ConfigureCustomField!default.jspa?customFieldId=XXXXXXX)
I changed my Default value from "none" to " SELECT TOPIC" this way when ever a new ticket was raised the custom field would display and the users can pick a TOPIC from the drop down. using BLCK CAPS for this entry and upper- lower case for the options helped them notice the option.
