Hi @Badana Shanmukha Teja ,

you can create a text-field multi line with a default value containing a table (as text). 

Unfortunately, using that approach, table could be also deleted by user (because it's a text)

This is the only thing you can do without using plugins.

Hope this helps,


Hi Fabio

Thanks for reply, can we know what to give default value containing a table (as text)
Is this any code ?

You can't do that either, the default values can only be set to text

Hi @Badana Shanmukha Teja ,

JIRA Admin > Issues. In the Fields section, click Custom Fields. Find the custom field you want to configure and click include > Configure. And "edit default value" button.

Value should be :

|| Heading 1 || Heading 2 ||

| Value 1 | Value 2 |

Remeber that you should change the field render to wiki markup in the related field configuration.

Please try and let me know.


Hi Fabio,

It's working, but please find my attachment.

In that by default, the field is showing text view, but when i manually click on Visual only it will show the box kind of thingmytxt.PNG

Yes, it is fixed.
After changed to Free text searcher option in field edit, by default it is showing visual text
But one more problem is, this is not showing the same format in customer end portal, 
Is there any solution to fix this?

Hi @Badana Shanmukha Teja ,

at portal side, you can't set a default value for a field (

The only way to do that is a behaviour provided by ScriptRunner app.

Sorry for that.



@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ you said "Remeber that you should change the field render to wiki markup in the related field configuration." => how do I do that?
