I have a custom field in the "Create issue" box.
When I enter a number in this field e.g. 00123456, Jira updates the format to 123,456.
Kind of similar to what happens in Excel when you enter a number before applying any cell format changes.
Any idea as to how I can resolve this so that the number displayed is as entered?
Cheers in advance,
It is correct (although you may want to reconfigure the language if the comma and full-stop are not right for your language preferences)
The problem is that you are entering a string into a numeric field. Jira is able to understand it is a number and stores it as such, then displays it as per standard way to show numbers.
If you want to use it as a string rather than a number, then you will need to put that into a string field (probably a short text one)
