Java script is not working

We are testing JIRA 6.2.7.

If Java scripts is placed in the CustomField of Type User (in field config scheme), script does not work.

But if same script is placed in any other Field Type, script will work.

Can any one help on this.

Sample Script:

<script type="text/javascript">

var summaryfld = document.getElementById('summary').parentNode;

document.getElementById('summary').value= 'Test Summary'; = 'none';


Even normal html code doesnot work if placed in user field

you need to include your script in

&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
   jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
       JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
			$("#summary").val("Test Summary");

check the following question

Thanks for commenting.

Still no luck, java script doesnot run if used on the User field.

add the above script on annoucement banner and check first

Script works fine in Announcement or any other fields.

Failing only on User Field

as i specified in my answer on given link you need to add javascript in a plugin as webresource module
