Custom field applicable context

Hello i am a little bit confused about the context of custom fields. I red in documentation often that custom field needs to be marked as global context. I think it was for CSV import and maybe other issues–otherwise there would be problems...so now i have to make custom fields which i could restrinct to some projects (which maybe would be better on this level of JIRA integration in the company), but i wonder if than later i have restrinct JIRA functionality for this fields.......if they are not in global context..does anybody know about this ?
