Story Point on a Shared JIRA Instance

I have a shared JIRA instance with many different projects. Is there a way to have multiple story point fields so that they can be configured for individual projects?

For example, 

1) project #1 wants the story point associated to the default issue type(Epic and Story) will have story point associated)

2) project #2, wants story point associated to Epic, Story, Bug issue types

3) project #3: wants story point associated with Epic, Story, Data

 

Thanks.

There's several ways to approach this, but I would go with:

Stick with one "Story Points" field.  Make it global across all projects.

Rename your standard field configuration scheme to something like "field config with SP",  copy it, and rename the new one "field config without SP".  Then edit the copy, setting the "story points" field as "hidden"

Next, create three "field configuration schemes", with

1) "field config with SP" associated with Epic and Story

2) "field config with SP" associated with Epic, Story and Bug

3) "field config with SP" associated with Epic, Story and Data

And use the other scheme for the other issue types.

Finally, associate each scheme with the relevant projects.

Thanks Nic. I think this will work for us.
