I have a custom field with 5 options. When I create an issue, I get a drop-down with None and the other 5 options. So far, so good.
However, when I view an existing issue and go to that field, I get the pencil icon and it says, Edit popup form enabled. And when I click on the pencil, I get a popup with the full issue.
Until very recently, this field worked as expected - the pencil icon said, Click to edit.
One of the references below mentioned the Move Issue permission, that I may have added, but my Jira user always had it since I'm the project admin, so it does not make sense.
I have no idea why I get this behavior on some fields and the desired behavior on others. There is nothing in field configuration that mentions these two behaviors.
Since I have not changed any field, I wonder whether this is a global Jira behavior that may have been changed by the Jira admin team.
Here are two references, but none provide a satisfactory answer/resolution:
This is for Jira server, version 7.11.
Well, sometimes one needs to RTFM!
In the ScriptRunner documentation, under the Limitations section (link below), they clearly state:
On the View Issue screen, trying to edit a field with a behaviour will launch the edit issue screen, instead of the normal inline editor.
We plan to submit a change request as this seems to be the designed behavior...
Hi @Amir Katz, I don't know but I'm interested in the solution! I only see the "Click to edit" option when I tried this in my Server 7.12.1 instance. Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?
Next, can you make sure your custom select field is present on the "Edit" screen (not just the "Create" screen?) In the past, I've tried to edit something inline and realized I couldn't do it because the field was missing from the correct screen.
Finally, are you using any add-ons that could be changing the behavior of the field?
Sorry I don't have the answer, but maybe with some additional info, someone from the Community will know!

To your questions:
1. All these fields are present in the Edit screens.
2. When I hover over a selection field, a pencil icon appears.
If the field does not have a Behaviour, the tooltip says Click to Edit.
If the field has a Behaviour, the tooltip says Edit popup form enabled.
