Jira cutting out scrpits from description of fields on create issue pop-up.

BłażejO Feb 19, 2013


I have following problem: when I click "Create issue" and the issue creation pop-up appears it cuts out any javascript that is attached in the fields or in their descriptions. Script is executed once on the load and then disappears from the code.

I added a <script></script> with some jquery to the description of particular field.

When I open "Create issue" link in new tab, everything is ok - script sits comfortably under the field and is doing his job:

However, when I click the very same "Create issue" it creates issue creation pop-up (probably ajax powered) that strips ANY script from the loded code:

It seems like ajax is cutting out any script on the load. Is there any workaround for this? I really need some simple jquery to be attached to the code to manipulate visibility, values and style of screen depending on user actions.

Field templates are far too poor (can't set default values for system fields).

Velocity templates can do only a small portion of what I need.

I don't have time to learn coding of behaviors plugin.

jQuery is exactly what I need, but it gets cut out...
