I have created a custom text field (ready only) under Administration --> Issues --> Custom Fields.
How do I add this to the issue page for one project? It does not need to appear on the Create Issue page (it can if necessary) but it does need to appear when viewing & editing an issue.
Sorry, but there's no way around it around it. I would NOT suggest adding default values like "N/A" or "Empty", it defeats the "field is EMPTY" JQL searches that prove useful.
If you really, really need this, you can customize JIRA Server. You cannot customize JIRA Cloud, so I have no suggestions.
You should take the source code of the Custom Fields that exist and modify their templates. Their VIEW template performs something like this:
#if($field.value) <input type='text' value='$field.value' /> #end
Effectively, they currently check to see if the field has a value before rendering. You should disable that IF check. You may need to adjust other things but this is likely the simple, scrapy solution.
