I have created a custom field with a Select List (single choice) . I inserted some options for this Select List.
All options which exist are used in different issues. Now one or more options of this listbox are not longer valid.
This means I want to avoid that the user can select these options . But I don't want to delete them (because in this case the options are deleted from the issues).
So my problem is:
I cannot deactivate this Select List because there exist still also valid options which the user should be able to select.
Disable the options in the select list.
Go to admin -> custom fields, find the field, click configuration to get to the list of options. Next to each option, you have actions - delete, rename and disable.
Disabled options can not be selected, but remain on existing issues, and can still be searched/reported.
If you disable/deactivate a particular value for a field as described here, can you still import that field value afterward? We are in the process of doing data migration and need particular field values to exist to do the import, but we don't want anyone to inadvertently select it in the mean time.
Yes, you can still import. And report on the deactivated values. You just can't use the values when creating new issues with the "new issue" function, or editing them into place (imports are not considered "new" issues, they're thought of as "existing somewhere else and needing to be moved into your Jira")
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
