I'm aware that there is a way to add an additional assignee in a Team-managed project by going into a task and adding an extra "People" Field into the Context Field, but I haven't been able to recreate this in a company-managed project. Is there another way I can edit the fields for ticket in company-managed projects? ie. adding another "People" field for all the tickets in my project.
Hi @Andrew Daur,
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
It can be done in a company-managed project too. You need to create a new custom field that is a user picker field and then associate it with the screens that the project is using. You need to be a Jira admin in order to create the custom field.
I see the Default Field Configuration section, but am unsure how to edit it to allow for the addition of the user picker field. Am I in the wrong place? I should have full permissions as I set up the organization, unless this specific feature is blocked on the free version.
You need to go to Settings > Issues > Custom fields, from here you can create a new user-picker field. Once the field is created you will be able to pick the screens it should be on.
Just to echo @Mikael Sandberg's answer here, this is the way to go. I would be curious to hear what the use-case behind having another user field here would be (maybe there's a better way to solve the requirement).
I'll also drop this here in case you need the steps to configure your screens after you follow Mikael's steps:
From here choose whatever screen you need to apply this to (you may only see one screen here depending on your issue-type scheme).
Click on the 3 hyper-links which will lead you to the respective screens (create, edit and view) and add your new field.
