Can I put an input mask on a Text Field (< 255 characters)?

Running JIRA v4.4

I have a text field (it's an Employee ID field) and I want a mask that forces the user to enter exactly 9 characters. Is this possible? Thanks.

You can write a simple Validator which uses JAVA REGEX functionalty to meet this.

While configuring the Validator you can Select the Field to be validated & also the Regex expression.

The Validator will make sure that User enters the value in required format.
