Two project specific context for custom field?

Is it possible to have two project specific contect for custom field?

Let me assume - project:project_1 and custom field: business.


Created one project:project_1 specific context (context_1) for issue type:Bug for custom field:business.

I want to add one more project:project_1 specific context (context_2) for other issue type:Epic for same custom field:business. Is it possible?

Hi Hisamitsu,

yes, that is possible. Create the custom field "Business". The chose Edit -> Configure. On the following page you can create contexts that you can assign to certain projects and issue types only. For example, if your custom field is a list box you can define different values in it for Project 1/Bug and Project 2/Epic.

Best regards

Sorry for misunderstanding your question. Petar is right, you can assign a project to only one context of a custom field.

No, you can't have different context in the same custom field for the same project - see here. You'll need to create two custom fields, each with context for project_1 - one for issue type Epic and one for issue type Bug. In this case you'll need to make sure that the proper field is visible for the proper issue type.

Why do you need this exactly? Maybe we can help you with an alternative solution?

How to manage many similar workflows?
