In that way it does't work on 5+ jira version, try with this

&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
	JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {		
	function callFunction(){  		AJS.$('label[for=customfield_11329]').css({color:'red'});

Great. It works!!

But only in edit screen, not in view screen.

glad to hear it worked!!

if it to be work on view screen you need to check custom field id on view screen

if my answer helped then vote up and accept as answerd :)

<script type="text/javascript">

how you tried and whatis the jira version?

can you share your code? i tried now it is working

It is 5.1.5 version,

Still not working

@Rambanam Prasad In which file do I need to edit this?

@Joe Moreno you no need to edit any files, just add code in accepted Answer in Announcement banner for testing, once it worked as expected then i suggest to add this code as web resource module in a plugin(you will get lot of post on this forum if you need to know how to add it in plugin) Note: don't forgot to change customfield id :)
