We added the scripts as part of a plugin and worked well

The best way to add javascript for jira 5.0 is by using webresource

<web-resource key="test-js" name="javascript">
		<dependency>jira.webresources:global-static</dependency>
		<description>JavaScript test</description>
		<resource name="test.js" type="download" location="templates/js/test.js" />
		<context>atl.general</context>
		 <context>atl.admin</context>
	</web-resource>

test.js as follows

JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {

....javascript

});

What version of Jira ? can you paste the script here ?

second part


//Reactto change of Purchasing method

purchase.change(function() {


if (purchase.val()=="SAP")
{

sapcategory.show();
sapcode.show();

} else {


sapcategory.hide();
sapcode.hide();

}

});



};
AJS.$(function () {

function initMyCustomField(dialog) {
AJS.$(dialog || document.body).each(function () {
var $dialog = AJS.$(this);

});
}
window.onload();

AJS.$(document).bind("dialogContentReady", function (e, dialog) {
window.onload(dialog.get$popupContent());
});

});
</script>

JIRA 5 we are using

First part of code

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function(){
requistionType = AJS.$("#customfield_11470");
capitalPlanDisplayArea=AJS.$("#cf-customfield_10741").closest('fieldset.group');
capitalPurchaseReasonDisplayArea=AJS.$("#cf-customfield_10740").closest('fieldset.group');
capitalFinancingDisplayArea=AJS.$("#cf-customfield_10739").closest('fieldset.group');
assetlifeArea=AJS.$("#customfield_11471").parent();
assetLocationArea=AJS.$("#customfield_11472").parent();
BackgroundArea=AJS.$("#customfield_10718").parent();
ProposalArea=AJS.$("#customfield_10716").parent();
capitalPlanDisplayArea.hide();
capitalPurchaseReasonDisplayArea.hide();
capitalFinancingDisplayArea.hide();
assetlifeArea.hide();
assetLocationArea.hide();
BackgroundArea.hide();
ProposalArea.hide();
rechargingtype = AJS.$('#cf-customfield_10753').parent();
capitalPlan= AJS.$('#cf-customfield_10741').parent();
capitalPurchaseReason= AJS.$('#cf-customfield_10740').parent();
capitalFinancing= AJS.$('#cf-customfield_10739').parent();
capitalPlan.hide();
capitalPurchaseReason.hide();
capitalFinancing.hide();
rechargingtype.hide();
sapcategory.hide();
sapcode.hide();
//Reactto change of Requisition Type
requistionType.change(function() {

if (requistionType.val()=="Capital Appropriation") {

capitalPlanDisplayArea.show();
capitalPurchaseReasonDisplayArea.show();
capitalFinancingDisplayArea.show();
assetlifeArea.show();
assetLocationArea.show();
BackgroundArea.show();
ProposalArea.show();

capitalPlan.hide();
capitalPurchaseReason.hide();
capitalFinancing.hide();
rechargingtype.hide();
} else {
capitalPlanDisplayArea.hide();
capitalPurchaseReasonDisplayArea.hide();
capitalFinancingDisplayArea.hide();
assetlifeArea.hide();
assetLocationArea.hide();
BackgroundArea.hide();
ProposalArea.hide();
}
});

Did you already place alert or console.log statements at the beginning of each event handler to see if the script is called at all?

Yes..I already tried it..If I refresh the page 2 or 3 times,the script is getting loaded..,.

Any idea about this behavior.

This might be a browser issue , try with different browsers . You can even include the below line in your script .

window.onload = function () {window.location.reload()}

This will refresh the page and may help .

Hi Mizan,

This also not working..The scrips works only in the second time loding.

Hi, by adding

window.onload = function () {window.location.reload()}

to one of the custom field description java script, this seems to have cause the custom field page to be refresh continously, and i am not able to edit any of the custom field.
I have tried to delete this from the field configuration page, but the same refresh issue is also seen in the field configuration page

Any idea/advice on how to stop this to remove the above coding from the custom field
