Nope, you can't put static text to screens. However you can use this workaround; you can add a description to your comment field on the field configuration scheme of your projects. Since comment field is default on every transition screen, you will have a static text on your screen. But you should be careful not putting it on a system default field configuration and use a customized field configuration for that specific project.

I want to ask, why don't you want to use Jira Toolkit plugin? It's a free app developed by Atlassian team.



Thanks For The suggestion

Jira Toolkit was not supported to our current version
