Problem using JavaScript with Jira custom field


I am using java script in description field of a custom field (of text type) to render it as a hyperlink (anchor tag).

But on editing/inline editing the jira-issue, the field value gets rendered as a normal text and not as a hyperlink.
On page refresh the field gets displayed again as hyperlink.

I tried "alerting" the value, it appears that after the edit operation (which is an ajax call) value of the custom field div changes to some "form".

Posting this here hoping some one who has come across similar problem could help me.

you need to use following event for inline edit


check this doc

Thanks Prasad for the reply :) Going through the doc to figure out the solution.

i found this exact same issue with my javascript intensive plugin. The field is getting re-rendered without the javascript getting run. Add your rendering logic within the following JIRA.bind

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


// rerun javascript here
