Changing issue type is not affecting javascript for custom field

Hi

My screen has project , issue types, select list and textbox.

Example if I open create issue --> select issue type bug - java script will fire. Now if I change other issue type -'discussion' --java script want fire.

Note - custom field values are same.

Any one can help me -

if (priority) {
	target = document.getElementById('customfield_807418');
	if (priority.value != 10836)
		target.style.display='none';
	priority.onchange=function() {
		if (this.value == 10836) {
			target.style.display = '';
			target.value="enter message here";
		} else {
			target.style.display='none';
		}
	}

try with this script

<script type="text/javascript">  
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
		callFunction();
	});
		callFunction();
function callFunction(){
		hideShowField();
	$('#customfield_807401').change(function(){	
		hideShowField();
	});
}

function hideShowField(){
var priorityValue=$('#customfield_807401').val();
	if(priorityValue == '10836'){
		//to show field
		$('#customfield_807418').closest('div.field-group').show();
		$('#customfield_807418').val("enter message here");
	}else{
		$('#customfield_807418').closest('div.field-group').hide();
	}
}
});
</script>

if you want to work this on create scren then you have to use webresource module.

Are you sure the javascript is loaded on screen when the new issuetype (discussion) is selected? Maybe you haven't added the javascript in the description of the field in the corresponding field configuration?

@jobin i added in field configuration

what is the jira version?

if you are using jira 5.0 and later then check this

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/47843/strange-javascript-problem-in-create-screen

make your javascript run as web-resource module and it might work.

Although I have solved the javascript problems loading as web-resource module.

Means how bhatadwaj

you go through https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Web+Resource+Plugin+Module

        <vendor name="${project.organization.name}" url="${project.organization.url}" />
        <param name="plugin-icon">images/pluginIcon.png</param>
        <param name="plugin-logo">images/pluginLogo.png</param>
    </plugin-info>
     
    <!-- add our web resources -->
    <web-resource key="yourmodulekey" name="your Web Resource module name">
        <dependency>com.atlassian.auiplugin:ajs</dependency>
          
         
        <resource type="download" name="yourfilename.js" location="{location of yourfilename.js}"/>
