Jira behavior pre-populate Table format in custom field wiki style



I have a custom field with Text Field (multi-line) . I changed it to "Wiki Syle Render" on project field configuration and I am putting the following code to set the default table format with headlines but it is not setting it. By default going to "visual" when I edit or create new issue. So its displaying the default code, which I mentioned in below code. 


I followed behavior setting a default description

Its not working for wiki style render custom field. How I can set the table format on wiki style render custom field? Anything wrong on my code?


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor


def HealthCheckNote = getFieldByName("Health Check Notes")



def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def HealthCkNote = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(HealthCheckNote.getFieldId())


def defaultValue = """h2. Sample Table Template:

||Col 1 (Header Shading)||Col 2 (Header Shading)||Col3 (Header Shading)||

||Row 1 (1st Col Shading)|?|?|

||Row 2 (1st Col Shading)|?|?|

||Row 3 (1st Col Shading)|?|?|""".replaceAll(/ /,'')

if (!underlyingIssue?.getCustomFieldValue(HealthCkNote)) {
