Custom field with default value to hide if not used

I am trying to create multiple custom text fields in create/edit issue page that I can have a default value showing an example of how to fill the field in but if that field is not used, for the whole field to be hidden. At the moment it still shows the default value (example) if it isn't used.

Thanks

Hannah

In the field configuration you can setup what to display under the field so you can put it there

Do you mean in the description for the field as I wanted to be able to show the layout here if possible?

By putting a default value the field is 'in use'

So there is no way around this? Is there a custom field that could do this/show an example?

You would need, if the field is not changed, to empty that field (in post function) in order to "hide" it. But I guess this is not possible in Jira OnDemand.

Yes.

Ok, it's not exactly what I wanted to do but I think I can work around it

Thanks for your help
