Change field type from Select to multi-select

Gareth Blake-Coggins March 4, 2024

We have a field we originally published as a select field in our Jira Product Discovery instance, but we now have a requirement to change this to a multi-select field. 

Can we simply change the field type? 

If not is there a way to create a new field and carry over the field contents ?

Many Thanks

Hi @Gareth Blake-Coggins ,

Jira product discovery is is a Cloud-only product.

As per my knowledge, out of the box you can't modify the custom field type in the cloud version. On cloud version, you don't database also.  

 

Suggestion is already raised with Atlassian @
