Thanks Nic. I agree with you that is not pratical if I have a lot of issues. Now if I have just a a couple of issues by project is it possible to define a priority by default for each issue in each project?


You'd need a bit of code to do that.  Just a post-function that can work out what to set and apply it.

Off the shelf though, you can do it if your issues are of different types.  You could have a "bug" workflow for bugs that has a post-function on "create" that could set the priority to "high".  Then a different workflow for "feature" that sets the priority "low" on create.  And so-on.
