How to display scripted or calculated field when creating an issue?

I tried to create an issue which contain filed as per following:




Total price: Price1+Price2


I used the Scripted field for the Total price, but the field didn't display on screen when creating an issue. I also put the script on the create transition description as per this link suggest ( but it didn't work. Please kindly suggest.


Thank you,

You don't.

Scripted fields are data that results from a calculation based on existing data.  On the create screen Price1 and Price2 are not set, so the script cannot do anything with them.  It can only create the data as the issue is created -  after the user commits the creation data.

The other point about scripted fields is that even when they have data, they do not appear on edit or transition screens because their data is not editable.  You can get them to display on these using javascript if you're a bit sneaky -  the script you've found should do it for some versions of JIRA, but as it's 3 years old, it will probably need a rewrite for more recent versions

In addition to what the two other answers already say, you can use Behaviours for dynamically displaying a field value based on other field values:

First of all you have to get field displayed on the screen. Check why it is not displayed using the instructions from this post :
