Indeed, on OnDemand a custom plugin won't be a solution, at least not before Plugins 3 are introduced. There's a feature request for introducing this post function in Jira (JRA-5493), but it's not scheduled for development at the moment.

So the link I added above will not work with ondemand?

You can try this free plugin that I think that's what you're looking for:

Hope it helps,
