how do i always show tabs in view issue screen

Hi there!

I´ve seperated my issue forms in three Tabs: main, references, solution

Now, i want to have these tabs always shown in the view issue Screen. Is there a way to do that, although there is no data entered in the fields?

Technically, no, JIRA hides tabs that contain only fields with no data when you're in the issue view.

The best cheat is to simply include a field you know will have data (you'll need a separate one for each tab).  If your field list for a tab does not include any mandatory fields, then you could reach for a scripted or message field (I've not tested this trick with the message fields from the JIRA Suite Utilities yet, but I think it still works - I used it to put text on tabs saying simply "the fields for this tab are all empty at present, please edit the issue and fill them in")


i used the Message Custom Field for View from JIRA Toolkit plugin,

How do i hide this field in case any field in a tab is not Empty?
