Configuring Default Issue Types and Fields for new Projects Edited


For a new Jira Cloud Next-Gen project, is there any way to configure the default issue types that are available and the default fields for each issue type?

I want all new projects to have the same setup from start.

Hi Tim,

Next-gen projects are independent projects and work without any shared configuration, for example, fields, issue types, permissions, workflows, screens), so it would not be possible to have a default configuration for next-gen projects.


Thanks for the clarification!

You are always welcome Tim!
If you have any other question, please count on us.


Hi @Angélica Luz 
I have the same question, but for classic projects!

We created a custom field and we want it to be added to all new project by default. I don't seem to be able to find how to do that..

Any help would be welcome, thanks!

Hi Laurent,

When we create a project, only the system custom fields will be added, then we must go to the Custom fields' page and manually add each custom field to the screens of the new project.
We don't have a feature request specifically for that, but we have one suggesting the ability to create templates for projects:
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.


I hate how next gen always creates a 'task' issue type first, even if the last issue I created was a different issue type. I'm talking about when you click the "+ create issue" button in a column. Is this uncontrollable as well I assume? why are they defaulting to the issue type listed LAST in their project settings page??? so sick of this application
