JIRA 5.2.1 / GH 6.0.8 summary field

We had before the update to jira 5.2.1 the summary field hidden and when saving the issue had the field autofilled via JS.

Problem 1:

After the update this is no longer working and in the field behaviour config there is following message.

The field Summary is not hideable, so it will only be hidden when the issue is editable. More info.

It seems that the autofill action is only working when the field is shown.

Problem 2:

The page embedded into "More info": is empty.

Question: Can the summary field no longer be hidden and autofilled via js?

I think that this could be related to the inline edit field option which doesn't work with Behaviours plugin.

Have you tried to remove this option of JIRA from the General Configuration administration screen?

I hope it helps you!

Great advice the suggested fix is working :)

but we would lose the inline editing feature :(
