How to associate a field configuration scheme with a project


Basically, I'm trying to follow the steps here:

It says:

  1. Go to your project and click Project settings
  2. Click Fields.

I don't have this "Fields" option.

I guess I don't have the correct permission, but I'm already admin of my project.

What should I do ? Who am I supposed to speak to ?

Can you please help me ?

Hi Nicolas.

If you are on cloud, you must have something looking like this. Hence, a Fields option. If you don't see that, I am afraid you are on a next gen project. You can't associate a field configuration scheme on a next gen project unfortunately as next gen projects don't use schemes.

Let me know if you need more help. :)

Hi Flavien,

Thanks a lot for your answer. Indeed, I'm on a next-gen project. Is there any way other way to do it?

Basically, what I'm trying to do is making some fields required. The things is, I want to do it only in my project, I don't want my changes to affect other projects in my company.

(I've already done the mistake in a previous company, that's why I'm cautious now! And I remember I set up a field configuration scheme).

Is there any workaround with next-gen project ?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to do it in a next gen project as of today :

I suggest you use a classic project and you create a specific configuration field for the issues in your project. Hence, it won't affect everybody's projects ;)

No way... The request has been done 2 years ago:

Anyway. Thanks a lot for your help Flavien. Much appreciated !!

Have a great day and stay safe,
