How to define a textarea property for a Jira service?

Hi,

Is it possible to define a textarea property for a service in JIRA? Defining type as string only takes 255 characters.

<property>
<key>Configuration</key>
<name>Configuration</name>
<type>string</type>
</property>

Regards,

Vijay

Have you tried textarea?

text works. not textarea.

text worked to show the text area. But update failed because it accepts maximum of 255 characters.

Errors

  • Error occurred trying to update service properties: com.opensymphony.module.propertyset.IllegalPropertyException: String exceeds 255 characters.
