I have tried multiple different codes to make the Summary Field Not Required or at least filled in by another field. I am trying to create a project that is more easily completed by my teams, but I cannot get the summary field to go away. I have tried different scripts, with no luck. Here is what I have any assistance is great!
Hii @Preston Warden
If you want to do this just for a project at first you must make a new field configuration and give it to your favorite project(go to upright side of your screen click on cog ...> issues ...> field configuration schemes ... > copy from default and then name if to want you to want. And again go to upright side of your screen click on cog ...> issues ...> field configurations ... > copy from one of the filed configurations and edit it the field summary and edit it then in description input the following script
<Default Value for Summary> with the desired default value for the Issue Summary field* and then you can hide the summary field from your favorite screen. Then go to your favorite field configuration schemes and add your new field configuration to that and go to setting of your favorite project and then click on fields (on the left side of your screen) On the action button click and choose "use a different scheme" (the new field configuration schemes that you made). If you use one of these add-ons Workflow Powerbox or Jira Misc Workflow Extensions or Adaptavist ScriptRunner for JIRA or Automation for Jira you can copy the value of your favorite field to the summary. If you use i tell what to do?
It really seems to be solution for Server only as it requires custom JS:
It can then be changed various ways using scripts in workflow transitions, project automation, or by the team that processes the tickets etc.
I have made a feature request for the default to be configurable in project settings, without having to code:
I would appreciate if you could vote for it if that would be a solution for you.
