Appended value to a custom field in Jira ticket

I have below requirement please let me know how this can be achieved?

We have a custom field by name MasterID and we will the enter the value to it while creating a Jira issue (say MasterID=12345)
In workflow transition, we need to have same custom field MasterID where the original value 12345 should be readonly and it should allow us to enter new value say 98765.
This new value should be appended to the original value ie MasterID should now have two values 12345 and 98765.

Please let me know how this can be achieved and if there are any type of custom field available for this?

In workflow transition, we need to have same custom field MasterID where the original value 12345 should be readonly and it should allow us to enter new value say 98765.
  • You can set custom field "Read-Only" by removing it in the "Edit Screen", thus the only option that it can be updated is through a transition.
This new value should be appended to the original value ie MasterID should now have two values 12345 and 98765.
  • I am not aware of any custom field that can do what you want. You can accomplish it through scripting and some add-ons (JIRA ScriptRunner). Get the current value, then append to the updated value upon transition. This will need to be added in the post-function.
