Velocity statements not processed by JIRA

I've created a Message Custom Field (for edit) with the following default value:

#if ($authcontext.user.inGroup('Clients'))

<div class="infoBox">

Please make sure to select <b>Client Request</b> as <i>Issue Type</i>. You will not be allowed to submit a Work Ticket.



For some reason the Velocity code is not processed but displayed as a text.

The field is made 'Required', as JIRA prescribes.

I am not sure how thinghs work in JIRA OnDemand, but u need to change the condition to the below one -


Hope it helps!

Thanks Naren, tried that already. Doesn't work. And I'm told by Atlassian that OnDemand will not support Velocity scripting at all...

Are you pasting the above script in the field description ???

I have a javascript which can check for current user group . it works for 5.1.x i am not sure if it will work for onDemand coz i guess ondemand is JIRA 6.0
