Wiki Editor for JIRA for Custom fields

Hi everybody,

i have just installed Wiki Editor for JIRA but i have just seen that plugin doesn't apply in free text custo fields.

Is there any way to apply the editor in custom fields?

Is there any planning so future versions apply to custom fields also?

I'm the author of this add-on. Sorry for my late answer but I just noticed this question.

The newest version works with all wiki-enabled fields so it should solve your problems.

If you are a plugin vendor you can also use this "goodness" by adding wiki-textfield, or wiki-enabled-textfield class to your textarea. It will be automatically enchanced with wiki editing features.


Hi Wojtek,

thank you for your fast reply! I noticed, that it is possible now for wiki-enabled fields. That's cool so far.

But my users came to me and asked, if it is possible to have here in that only field the menu for the code snippets. They aren't very familiar with markup and just wand to click click click ... , as you may know. :)

I'm not a vendor. Can i enabled the menu in any other way especially for this costum field?



Hello Mario,

It seems that this is wiki-enabled field (I see the blue keyboard icon), the editor should just work with it.


Hi Wojtek,

thanks for your response! I installed the new version yesterday.
The new release is great. New toolbar and enabled for custom fields, too.




Hello, Wojciech! You mentioned here that we can attach the editor by adding wiki-textfield, or wiki-enabled-textfield class to textarea. We're creating a gadget where I created a simple textarea with these classes, but nothing happened (no editor appeared for our textarea). If you can clarify this, it would be great. Thanks in advance

Hello Alexander! I'm glad you want to use the editor. Probably what you need is to add a web resource dependency to your gadget, just to make sure the JS code is there. The key is com.atlassian.jira.plugins.jira-wiki-editor:wiki-editor-resources-init. Let me know if you need any assistance with this. Cheers, Wojtek

thanks for the quick response! This exactly what we were looking for.

Answers for the questions above where posted in review section of plugin in Marketplace.

May I vote it up somewhere?

Cheers, Mario
