Welcome to the community @Cris Oyarzo !

Are you refering to prefilling the Description field with text when you are creating an issue?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I am sorry, I do not understand the question. 

Do you mean you are trying to restrict the field context of the Description field, like you can with custom fields?  If so, then the answer is that you can not.  Description is a system field, it does not have context, it's always on the issues.

You can look to the field configuration to hide the field, or remove it from all the screens in the project.

The description field does not have context on Server as well as Cloud, so I am still a bit stuck on what you mean.

What are you trying to achieve with this?

Thank you for explaining for me, I think I understand now; you want some default text put into the description field when someone starts creating a new issue.

I usually caution people against doing this.  I've run into many systems where fields have been defaulted and users have not bothered to enter anything.  The worst one was a project with over 30,000 issues containing the default text.  I found it because the project owners asked me to write something that would automatically close any issue raised with the defaulted text.  The real solution was to removed the defaults and force the users to actually enter something useful!

Anyway, that aside, Jira does not do defaults for some fields (to prevent the problem I've just described), you will need to find an app that can create default text.
