I would like to have the "description" field appear with some text to act as a template. I only want this to affect the "bug" issue type.
I have been tinkering for a bit, but I can only seem to edit custom fields, not "core" fields.
Upon selecting the bug issue type, the description field shows the following text:
*Steps to reproduce* etc.....
You can prepopulate the description field using an add-on like Power Scripts.
We've actually put together a quick 8 min video tutorial that walks through all the steps you need to take to set this up. And we've also included the sample code we used, so you can just copy and paste it to test for yourself.
Hope this helps!
That's correct. Description is for a human to describe something, and should not be defaulted. When you do default it, you end up with metric shed-loads of identical and pointless descriptions completely wasting everyone's time, and when the users do enter data, it's not very categorisable when you search. A far better option than this is to create set of appropriate, separated, and clear text fields - steps to reproduce, observed behaviour, desired behaviour, etc. You can default these, but because you're now structuring your data correctly, you'll find you don't need to.
