Apologies Nic for the delayed response. My question is regarding extending the project objects like Project Name ,Project Key and Project Lead(default fields) which are displayed when creating a new project. Attached is the screenshot for reference.
Request to please update the details.
Sorry, missed the previous comment.
If you want to have more fields on that screen specifically, you'll need to hack the core "project create" code to include them and write them back. You are limited to the project fields that Jira has though - on top of those three it's asking for, the others are Category, Description, Project Avatar and URL.
If you want more of these, you need more code. There's a plugin called "Pro Fields" which allows you to add a pile of other fields at a project level (but they still won't be added to that create screen, they're handled by a tab on the project summary/admin screen)
Thanks Nic for the response, as mentioned I have installed the "Pro Fields" plugin in my Environment and noticed that with this plugin a new field named "Project Fields" is added in the Administration Panel of the Project. Attached is the screenshot for reference. With this fields we can add Project Fields but that are available after creating the Project.
I am looking for provision of adding custom fields when creating a new project itself.Tried for looking to edit the "project create" code in the Server and could not trace it. Can you please let me know which file has to be modified such that I can add new fields.
No, pro-fields just adds the ability to have fields at a project level.
I'd recommend sticking with the process of "create project with minimal data, then ask project leads to update the pro-fields before they use the project".
If that really isn't going to work for you, then I'm afraid I don't actually know where the simple "add project" screen is located - I avoid changing core code in Jira because it's a nightmare to try to maintain when upgrades happen. If you absolutely have to do this, I'd start with downloading Jira source code and searching it for the soy/vm/jsp that provides that page as a starter, as you're going to need to amend that and then look at the java to get the data from it back into the project.
