How to set default values for some issue fields in the create issue screen?

Hi there,

I would like to write default values in some issue fields by using a plugin when a user open the create issue screen.

Any idea to start??

Thanks a lot!

I just came across this old question - so here is an option in 2016:

Workflow Essentials for JIRA has this kind of functionality. You can define default values on create screens for many fields, per project and issue type or globally. 

There is a similar feature request has been raised here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-4812.

Which field that you wish to be configured with default values? Probably you can refer to this page: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Setting+a+Default+Value+in+the+Description+Field if you want to set a default value in the 'Description' field.
