Change default value of description field


Is it possible to change the default value of the description field base on issue types? Eg.

For instance, we'd like the field for a Story to be prefilled with

h3. Description

h3. Test instructions

and for a bug with

h3. Description

h3. Actual

h3. Expected

h3. Reproduce

Seems like you want to make use of Field Configuration Schemes. Please have a look here for detailed documentation on how to associate field behaviour with issue-types

Thanks! I'll dig into to that!
