Customizing project creation screen ?



I was wondering if it's possible to customize the project creation screen and add custom, mandatory or not, fields in it ?

I've tried Profields but it is not really what I'm looking for. Users creating projets have to go through a manual process to apply a field layout to their newly created projet, which they won't do if it's not mandatory.

Hi Francis - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, you can create a Create screen for the Screen Scheme your project is using. Then you can add additional fields or remove fields that you want on the screen. 

To make a field mandatory at Create, you can change the Field Configuration for that project. 

Here is some documentation to help with both:

I'm talking about the project creation screen here, the one where by default where there's only two fields (project name, project key).

Ah, sorry - I misread that. No, I don't know of any way to change the project creation screen.

Hi @Francis Ducharme

I'm Leo, Product Manager of Profields.

It is not possible to include fields or attributes into the project creation screen. We've asked for this to Atlassian but it's not possible.

To know more, are you using Jira Cloud or Data Center?

Thanks and I'm sorry I can't help you.


Hi Leo

We're using the cloud version.
