JIRA Color Custom Fields accept HTML commands in field description for automatic setting?


I am wondering if it is possible for the Color Custom Fields, particularly the Picker, to accept and act upon setting rules / commands via HTML stored in the field description?

In particular, I would be interested in running the following or a similar command:

<!-- @@Formula: issue.get("customfield_11605")>=1 ? #00ff00 : issue.get("customfield_11605") >=0.7 ? #ffff00 : #ff0000 -->

Basically I would be looking for the ability to conditionaly set / format these fields automatically?

Would this be possible, now or in the future?

If you want to see change color on screen you need to use javascript in description.

Otherwise you can write post function using script runner to change value


I am creator of this add-on. You mean to set value using javascript in description of banner?

If so my answer yes, because, it is just test field with specific renderer. Or you are asking to do it using configuration?

Hello sir,

Yes, I think that placing the command in the Description would be fine.

I am not at all particular as to the language used - just whatever would cause the field value to be automatically set the easiest?

OK, thank you for the advice........

I am trying out the syntax - can you help me out wit hthis syntax to be placed in the Description?:

<!-- @@Formula: if (issue.get(“customfield_11605”)>=1)
return #00ff00;
else if (issue.get(“customfield_11605”)>=0.7)
return #ffff00;
return #ff0000;
} -->
