Hideable Text Field deleted after upgrade to 7.0 (Problem in Behaviours Plugin)

Hi All,

We are trying to upgrade our JIRA to 7.0 however, we notice that the hideable text field is not available anymore in the 7.0 version.  We are using this field in our previous JIRA and it's trouble for us as we use this quite extensively.

We use Behaviours plugin to hide this field.  I know for a fact that this plugin has been merged with Script Runner (which we also have installed in our instance).  After the upgrade of Script Runner,  the menu in Behaviours plugin became duplicated.  Disabled it in the plugin page and after checking the Behaviours rule, all Hideable text  fields were marked as deleted in the Behaviour rules.


Please advise

Hi Alaine,

I am a little confused by your question, because I do not think there were any major changes to hideable text fields in JIRA 7.0. They are still available as custom field types in the most recent version:

Perhaps you need to follow the conversion process to change your old fields to hideable text fields? https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/behaviours-overview.html#_hidden_fields
