How do I set a default value for a custom field?

Deleted user Oct 18, 2018

Hello,

I want to set a default value for my Text fiel (Multi-line) which should be a short sentence. How can I do it?

Thanks in advance!

Hey Sibylla!

Just head to the configuration of the custom field (System -> Issues -> Custom fields):

Custom_fields_-_JIRA.png

Then click on Edit default value:

Configure_Custom_Field__Additional_information_-_JIRA.png

Hi, I have edited the default value same way but however my custom field is still empty. 

default value 1_LI.jpg

default value 2.PNG

 

Is there anything that I am missing or need to configure?

Is there a way to add wiki formatted text as default value for a custom field?

@[deleted] beware about setting default values. I've found about half the users will never update or even look at a field that already has a value in it. 

Hi,

Jira settings > 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.

Thanks.

Hello

Can you advise on a way to "de-select" the option.  I set it before, but now I want to remove the default and keep it blank
