I am looking to create multiple contexts within the same project for different issue types. After I create one context for an issue type, going back to the context, the project is removed from the menu indicating that I cannot create another context for that field within the project for a different issue type.
The global field config for custom field (single dropdown selector) "Department" is "Audio, Visual, Accounting".
In a project (A) for issue type "Request". The desired options for this issue type and field would be: "Customer Service, Maintenance, Administration".
In the custom field context for the same project (A), I'd like to change the options for "Department" for issue type "Bug" to include "Research, Legal".
Is this not possible? I'm ultimately trying to get JSD (cloud) to display a set of options to a user for a specific request type (associated to an issue type "Bug") and for a different request type (associated to issue type "Request") show other options. If I have 4 other issue types in this project potentially using this field, having to create a total of 5 more custom fields to simply show other options seems crazy, what am I missing?
this is not possible but there is a Suggestion open for that. Feel free to vote and watch the issue:
From this Suggestion the limitation is as follows:
In the custom field configuration context, it is not possible to choose a project if it has already been associated to another configuration context of the same custom field. For instance, it is not possible to make the following associations:
Task, project1, configuration context 1
Task, project2, configuration context 2
Bug, project1, configuration context 3
Bug, project2, configuration context 4
