Issue with Text Field

I have a custom field of type Text (unlimited multiline). I placed this field in a tab.

When I edit the issue, below the field there is a comment box. When creating the issue that box is not shown.

In the screen schema I am using the same screen for create, view and edit the issue.

Is this a bug? This is Jira 6.0

Thanks in advance.

if you want to restrict comment on project level then try as @Nic said.

if you don't want to add comment on edit page then try with following code

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function(e,context) {
function callCommentHideFunction(){
    if($('#edit-issue-submit').val() =='Update'){

Thanks, this is what I was looking for. Turns out that Jira is showing the comment box in every tab in the issue, and that looks wierd, but with this code I was able to hide it.

No. You aren't expected to make a comment when creating an issue - the information you might want to put in a comment is almost always what you should be putting in the description anyway.

Do you know how to get rid of that comment box?

Remove the permissions for the users to comment.
