try something like this with Javascript

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
	JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
	function limitSize(){
					var decimalValue = $("#customfield_13820").val();
					if(decimalValue < 1 || decimalValue > 14){
						alert("Value should be 1-14");						
						return false;

This dosen't work. What JIRA version are you on. Im on 5.2.9.

I can get the alert message to show if I delete everything else:

<script type="text/javascript">
alert("Value should be 1-14");

we are using jira 5.2.5,

where you have added javascript?

i suggest to add as it by changing custom field id on footer.jsp or load it add webresource in any plugin

I have just added it to the description of the field.

field description on field configuration right?

The above code is not working.

can anyone suggest the right code??
