Using HTML to create a custom field

I am trying to create a custom field to monitor health on our issues. I would like to use fields Green, Yellow, and Red that I use HTML to customize to display these options in BOLD and the coordinating color. Any suggestions?

If reading correctly you will need to developer your own custom field to present the desired HTML.

Just declare the module, and write the Java class to return the desired HTML based on value.

You can then use the JIRA admin area to assign the newly installed field to your desired issues and projects.
