      Atlassian Update – 19 March 2021

      Hi everyone,

      thank you for all your votes and comments on this suggestion.

      Since Jira Data Center version 8.16 we're introducing a possibility to configure a default value for the Description field. From now on, admins can add and apply contexts with a default value to multiple issue types and projects (working exactly as currently for custom fields). We added a separate page in the admin panel, that lists all system fields - with Description field as the only editable. You can learn more about it how it works here: 

      For the future we considering extending the functionality by:

      • adding other system fields to be configurable e.g. summary or fix version that you have mentioned in the comments under this issue.
      • giving the rights to set up default values to Project Level Admins.
      • extending this functionality for JSM Customer Portal.

      To make the best decision, we’d like to hear your feedback. For this purpose, we've created a new suggestion focused entirely on collecting feedback and ideas for further improvements: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-72239. We’ll use it to keep engaging with you on this topic, so please drop all your thoughts there.

      To avoid having multiple suggestions about the same topic, we’re closing this one as fixed. It doesn’t mean that no further work will be done in this area. This will help us streamline your feedback and identify some missing parts that we still need to incorporate into JIRA.

      Other than that, we would like to clarify is that this project is for Jira Data Center only. For Jira Cloud admins can set a default value on the Description field in Next-gen projects, for Classic projects please vote and follow the issue at JRACLOUD-4812.

      Thank you,

      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      I would like to provide default values not only for custom, but also for system fields.

      An example:
      Depending on the issue type, I would like to provide different default values for the field "Description" which help users to fill in e.g. the details of a bug issue.
