I would like to be able to have a context on the out-of-the-box "Priority" field in Jira. I am setting up our requirements in Jama to flow over to Jira. There will be a requirement in Jama that matches a requirement in Jira. In Jama, the Priorities we have are "Must Have", "Should Have", and "Nice to Have". I love being able to reuse fields vs creating new custom fields, so if I could just create a context for the "Priority" field in Jira, this would be ideal.
Is this possible?
contexts on system field for Jira Cloud are not available. However, there is a Suggestion you could vote for. This ensures you are signalizing the request is of importance to you / your team.
Hi @Kelly Nezwek ,
You can add new priority values for the system field and create a priority scheme with these values. You can then associate the priority scheme to the project.
You need to have JIRA admin privileges.
Thanks, @Niranjan ! This is super helpful!
Can you assign the priority schemes by issue type? In the project, I want all issue types to use the out-of-the-box priority scheme, except for the custom issue type I created called "Jama Requirement" (which would use the Must Have, Should Have, etc. priorities).
Also, I'm not seeing how to configure Priority Schemes in Cloud. I found this, but it's for server: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver0813/associating-priorities-with-projects-1027137778.html
Hi @Kelly Nezwek ,
ah I did not notice that you are on Cloud. I do not believe that this feature of priority scheme is available in Cloud. There is an open feature request - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-3821
You can add new priorities though - https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/configure-statuses-resolutions-and-priorities/
