JIRA: how we can make customize description section in JIRA

Hi all,

 

I need to customize jira and create a template under Project settings so that each time I create a user story, I get below written in description:

User Stories
Acceptance Criteria

 

I checked few links and got the answer like we can do by changing in WEB-INF/classes/templates/jira/issue/field/description-edit.vm

Adding a section like below:

#if($description == '')
#set ($description = 'Put stuff here:')
#end

My question is how I can create table and change background colour using this vm file.

Is there anything administrator can create template under project settings->fields?

Hi! 

 

You Idea to change template some times is good, unfortunately mostly is bad.

Because you can forget when you will upgrade, template changes affected to all system. 

Better way is set manually or automatically by script, e.g. 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-3821

you have post-functions for extend and change functionality for issue. (https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiracloud/advanced-workflow-configuration-776636620.html)

About fields yes it is possible, if you are using automatisation. 

Easy way is https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.plugin.automation.jira-automation-plugin/server/overview.

About wiki markup just read here - https://jira.atlassian.com/secure/WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa?section=all

 

I hope my note can help for you.  

 

 

Cheers,
