Set Customfield with Javascript

Hi All, 

I've been tasked to set a customfield with Javascript. 

Back story is that i want to query an API via javascript and then get the return values to set the customfields in the create screen so it "Auto-populates" certain customfield. 

Im currently having difficulties, just setting the customfield field with free text.

The current code i have is

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
setDefaultValues();
});
setDefaultValues();

function setDefaultValues(){
setFieldValue();
}

function setFieldValue(){

$("#customfield_13600").val('Test');

 

});
</script>

 But it doesn't seem to set the customfield to "Test".

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks, 

Pon

hey @zezeto[Nadir.Meziani],

 

By any chance do you also know how to get custom field values via ajax? 

so like for example if i put in 123 value into a field, can i grab that value by any chance?

Many thanks for your help 

Actually i got it :)

 

var custNo = document.getElementById("customfield_10000").value;

hi @Pon Yuntawai

Or like this

<script type="text/javascript">

AJS.$("#customfield_13600").val();

</script>

, without put anythings in val () fuunction.

Hi, 

$("#customfield_13600").val('Test');

The above won't work because the free text value is in form of an input and it's panel is inactive in idle mode (unless you double click and a text box appears) 
so the id, customfield_13600 does't exist yet. 

 

Use the following: 

AJS.$("#customfield_13600-val").text("Test Test Test")
