Text on screen

Hi friends,

It is possible to add our own content in the screen.

Please share your thoughts,

Thanks in advance,

Try the message field in the Jira toolkit addon (for static text anyway. I think you already know about custom fields for capturing data)

Hi Nic,

How does this work? I have downloaded JIRA Toolkit and can add message field (edit and view) but when I add it to screens I'm not able to see them on issue creation/edit screens.

Please advise. 

Many thanks,


Have you put your desired text in the right place for the field(s) definitions? 

One trick to be aware of too - you need to use the "edit" field for create, edit and transition screens - they render differently to simple "view" actions.

I guess you want to add the content in some fields, try custom fields of type limited or unlimited text
