It is currently not possible to use multi-line text fields to display longer text strings with JIRA Nfeed plugin.

Hi Florjan, 

Currently only the below display mode is supported by nFeed : 

  • Autocomplete – To have an autocomplete text box with plenty of options.
  • Query results picker – To select the data displayed in a table in a raw format.
  • Read-only – To display data in JIRA issue edit screen with no action on it from the user.
  • Select list – To display 1 to 9 select lists in the same row to lead the user to filter and finally select the data.

Can you please provide me of example of your usecase ?

 

Hi!

The latest request of our customers is to display service description of the previously selected service (in related nfeed custom field) in a box like for standard Description field (with more than one line!).

They need description of the service to check if their service selection is ok.

As a workaround I see connection of nfeed customfield and standard milti-line text field but I don't know how to connect them and how to fill this standard field automatically in opened form (e.g. for other fields we use behaviours plugin - but it doesn't work with nfeed fields). Maybe with REST somehow? Do you know how to achieve this?

Thank you and regards,
Florjan

I also created support ticket in Nfeed project (NFEED-1219).

Additional information: We use Read-only mode for field with service description and autocomplete mode for field with list of services.
