Can I set up a template for comments?

Edumate @ Hobsons May 27, 2013


Can I set up template/pre define text so the text is pre populate in case I click on "Merge into quick fix"?

So the

<textarea data-issuekey="EDU-7831" data-projectkey="EDU" rows="10" name="comment" id="comment" cols="60" class="textarea long-field mentionable"></textarea>

has predefined text?

Could this be set up for my account only?

Thank you

Hello Radek

Is there a reason the template needs to be in a comment?

Anyways, for this case, based on what you describe, perhaps you can create a user macro .. and then insert the user macro in a comment on-demand.

If going to be part of a bigger process, perhaps a plugin might be a good idea (i.e., click "merge..." which creates comment and context - but not clear on how its pulling the JIRA issue key in first place - have you already created that functionality elsewhere?)


Another idea - maybe outside of the box on what you are asking - but maybe interesting for injecting templated content into Confluence page. Just another idea.

Hope this helps with some ideas anyways..

I believe that macro is what I was looking for. I'll explore and make a comment here.

Actually - I missed the "JIRA" labels on your question and for some reason had a Confluence-brain in my answer. I think b/c I don't think of JIRA as making templates.. Anyways, good luck with that.

If you want to do something for your account only, you could use the speakeasy plugin:

This plugin allows to add extra JavaScript to the JIRA page, so I assume it should be possible to pre-fill the comment box when that button is clicked via JavaScript.

Such scripts can be shared with the whole company, but only if the user enables it, it will be triggered.
