Isn't there a "tooltip" in Jira?

kris Oct 25, 2012

Either I'm blind or this is another bit of (what I think is) missing core functionality. Can you do a tooltip for custom fields? I don't mean the message field that you can get with the toolkit. My users have specifically asked for a tooltip. Preferably hoover, but clickable would work too. I said, if not natively there's probably a plugin for it. But I can't find this functionality anywhere. Is it really not available?

Hi Klanz,

It really is not available at this time, see the following thread here at the Atlassian Answers:
how to customize tooltips on dropdown fields

Also, there was New Feature Request for this, but is resolved as won't fix: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-22435

Cheers,
Matheus Fernandes

Thanks Matheus, that's what I was afraid of. I'll add it to my "needs a plugin developed" list ;)

Yeah... It could be a good tip for Maxim at "What plugin JIRA needed?" though. :)
