I have created a custom field (user picker). I would like the field description to be "bold" when displayed on screens. I put the description between <b>text</b> but that is how it is displayed on the screen. It does appear bold under the field on the Administration page. This is on Jira Software v 7.2.
Try to follow these steps:
- Open the associated field configuration
- Check for the field for which you want to have a custom message
- Click *Edit* and put something similar to below to the description of that field
<span style="color:#0747a6">THE CUSTOM MESSAGE</span>
- Click update
This shall work for most of the fields except the user picker as far as I know.
Feel free to let me know if it works or if you have any further questions.
Thanks @Amit Girme Sorry for the late reply. For some reason I seem to have missed the notification about your interesting reply!
Your approach only works with certain field types.
I did a short test. it works with
It does not work with:
I don't have more custom field types to test with currently.
Strange: In the "Edit" dialog for all/some(?) custom field types, under the description field there is written "You can include HTML, make sure to close all your tags."
But why, if it doesn't work? :D
It seems, that where your approach works, also <a href...> HTML tags work, so links to documentation pages for using a field can be included. Too bad, I need such a link for the "Multiple Isse Link Picker" type, but just there it doesn't work.
