Released Description Field (optional)

Learn how to configure Jira to view and edit the AI-generated descriptions right on your Jira ticket.

Released AI-generates descriptions for your Jira tickets based on their title and internal description. By default, the description is stored in issue properties.

To be able to view and edit the generated description on the Jira issue itself, you have the option to store the description in a custom field. To do so, add the "Released Description" custom field to every issue type you want to include in your release notes.

Configuring the description field

Select the type of project that contain the issues for your release notes and follow the instructions below to set up the custom field.

You must have the administrator role to configure issue types in team-managed projects. Learn more about team-managed project roles.

To add the Released Description field to your issue types:

  1. In the project sidebar, click Project settings > Issue types.

  2. Select the issue type you want to edit.

  3. Search for the Released Description field in the Fields sidebar on the right.

  4. Drag the Released Description field into the Description fields section in the middle. Jira will highlight the dropzone with a blue border.

  5. Click Save changes.

Repeat these steps for each issue type in your project.
