How do I modify Virgil code that it will be compatible with JIRA 5?

I create a Google Custom Search account and modify a simple Virgil code in JIRA v5.1.3. (

I know Virgil will not work in the Quick Create/Edit dialog.

I create issues via the normal Create Issue screen. But, it does not work.

Hi Ian,

In regards to your inquiry here, I have posted a response and a sample Virgil code which was tested against JIRA 5.1.3 in the support ticket that you had raised in our support system. May I know if the sample code provided works for you?


Can you provide us with the sample code that was tested against JIRA 5.1.3? Thanks!

Please refer to hyperlink:

I inject the code to the description of the Summary field, via Administration > Field Configurations > Select the applicable field configuration > Edit the Summary field.
