  1. We're evaluating JIRA Capture and I'm noticing that, when creating a template, some fields I've not specified to be showing within the template are showing anyway ... not all ... but some. This has nothing to do with changing a project or issue type after selecting a template or required fields (they're not). What am I missing?

  2. There needs to be a way to hide required fields if default values are set.

    For example, you may not want customer to be selecting the type if the issue. Customer submits the request, development team determines if it is a bug, issue or new feature. The fewer fields customer need to fill in, the better.

  3. Custom JavaScript is not working.

    In our application there is the version available as app.version.

    However, trying to use this as vaiable in JIRA Capture results in "TypeError: Cannot read property 'version' of undefined".

    How can this be accomplished?


  4. This has got to be a stupid question, but how do you delete a template? I can't find anything in Capture nor in the JIRA console to manage/delete them.

  5. Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if you are able to add a JIRA search field to a template that will search JIRA for any potential duplicate bugs or requirements, thereby preventing the tester from creating duplicate bug or requirement tickets? If you can do this, how is it done? Thanks

  6. @rick crow i'm seeing the same issue.  fields i've deselected still appear for me and my team when using the tempate (sad)

  7. Confluence is a wiki. You can use it to collaborate on writing and sharing content with your team. Your team can be as small or as big as you like. It could encompass the whole world. Your content can be as simple or as rich as you like. It can be just words, or you can add images, diagrams, activity streams, web service integration and more.

    In a nutshell, a wiki is a piece of software that runs on a server. It publishes web pages that you can read via a web browser such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Microsoft Internet Explorer. The thing that makes wiki pages different from other web pages is the edit button. Provided that you have the right permissions, you can edit the page, save your changes, and the updates will be visible to other people immediately!!!

  8. I'm having trouble getting the "Epic Link" to show up in other projects. One project shows the epic Link, but when I switch over to another project,  the epic link tab is no longer shown. (Trying to scan through anything to help solve this issue.)

  9. Are custom Javascript variable still not working?  I see that Peter Gasser asked this question three years ago.  Is this still not resolved?  Without access to your custom JS variables, my organization will not be able to use this otherwise very useful plugin.

    1. If I remember correctly, this is a limitation of e.g. the security context of Chrome.

      What you can do however is write stuff you need to have available into a hidden DOM element, and declare a variable in JIRA capture which uses some sort of:

      document.getElementById('your_id_here').value / innerHTML / ...
      1. That will work, I guess.

        Thanks, Peter Gasser
