JIRA Toolkit Plugin : don't display message custom field for edit in bulk edit


We added a Message Custom Field for Edit on our instance. We added it in a screen and it works well.

However, the message is also displayed when we perform bulk edit actions, and this is really disturbing for the users (it says something like "Don't do this operation unless you're really sure of what you do"... As a result, no one tries to perform any bluk edit anymore...)

We tried to add a javascript in the description, but it seems that the description is not displayed in the bulk edit screen so the javascript is not executed.

Is there a way to remove the Message Custom Fields from the bulk edit screen?

I found a workaround for this issue: on the configure screen the for the field, be sure to set an applicable context for the field. I used both issue type and project contexts, and now the message field doesn't show on the bulk edit screen.
