Issue Creation, How to fill 'Acceptance Criteria' field according to the 'Component' user input?


Our project needs to implement a somewhat dynamic behavior for the users opening tickets.

According to the 'Component' field value set by the user (ticket type), we would like to have 'Acceptance Criteria' dynamically filled with specific information, representing further notice to users on what information the support team expects as input inside the issue.

How is this achievable?

Is there an even more dynamic behaviour where, just like the setting of the Issue Time on Issue Creation, the field set is reconfigured in the create screen?

An assisting solution is to add 'hints' besides each one of the fields (like the system default ones) providing users suggestion on ho to fill certain fields (mandatory, what kind of value, etc.).

Thanks for your assistance in finding a flexibile and evolutive solution (independant of versions),

1) You can use workflow postfunction which sets the value of Acceptance Criteria based on Component value.

->You need to go through the workflow module postfunction in

2) For more dynamic behavior, you need to add Javascript

Thanks for the answer, it covers what I already know. Dynamic behavior comes still only with javascript, you are right.

You can probably use the JIRA Behaviours Plugin: it allows you to make changes on a field based on others.

Thanks Pedro. I was thinking of avoiding extra plugin install, because of the future maintenance of the solution. But indeed, that's about the only dynamic solution there is.
