Running JIRA v 7.4. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I found that I could restrict the input with a script such as
Which can limit the editing of a field to only 8 characters. I was able to do this in my Jira 7.5.0. instance.
However this only appears to work when you click the Edit button for the issue. If your Jira instance is setup to use the inline edit feature, it looks like changing the value this way does not honor this imposed limitation.
I found an interesting related post in https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Trying-to-limit-the-number-of-characters-in-a-text-field-single/qaq-p/364908
In that post @Adrian Vital purposed using a workflow validator in order to check the length of a field using a regex. This might be helpful in order to make sure that an issue cannot transition until this field is corrected with an appropriate value. But the workflow validator only prevents transitions, it does not directly effect what value can be entered in that issue at any other given time.
I hope this helps,
