Jira > Capture > Available Variables (additional) not visible in Jira


For evaluation I added two variables (JiraVersion, current date).

Unfortuneatly, they are not displayed in the Jira document.

Do I have to change something in my Jira/Issue configuration.

Thank you.


PS: Yes, the variable tests in the Firefox-plugin were successful.

Thank you. This works for the description field Create (New) Issue (with the Firefox (23.01) plugin).

I tried this with Attach to Existing Issue. Did not work.

Thank you.

I'm having trouble with a variable (Epic Link) not showing.

What's happening for me, is that when I select Project "A" It shows me the Epic link component in the details field. But when I switch to Project "B" the Epic link is no longer available. Even when I create a template, the same thing occurs for me. I have a feeling it might have to deal with how I have my project created. Thought I don't know where to start to allow for this trigger to occur for for them. 

So im thinking that it has to deal with something in the back end.
