Jira view issue screen, embedded javascript for custom fields


I would like to insert some javascript to 'view issue' screen to put a text with some calculations next to the custom fields.

I have read some posts to put javascript into 'edit issue' screen, so I already have done that for 'edit issue' screen by writing some javascript into Field Description. However, I cannot find anywhere to put javascript in view issue screen.

Is there a way for this?

You can either put it in the announcement banner (easy, less elegant) or write a plugin with a javascript resource that is loaded in the view issue context.

Thank you for answering. Is there any free plugin for that?

Free plugin that puts your javascript into the view context? Don't think so. You will have to write a custom plugin.

Use a scripted custom field with whatever logic for calculation as they more maintainable than javascripts. Javascripts are bound to break anytime a JIRA upgrade happens
