Associate multiple field configurations to one project?

Christina Evans August 17, 2023


I would like to set a field configuration per issue type on my board. I have two issue types and I want to dictate required fields differently for each issue type. I can't seem to figure out whether I can associate the second field configuration to just the issue type?

Yes, you can set a field configuration for each issue type, just go to Project settings > Fields and click on Actions > Edit fields.

This will take you to the field configuration scheme and from here you can associate an issue type with a field configuration.

I was going in circles and missing it. Thank you!

This solution did not work for me. I'm using Jira Cloud. When I click Edit fields, I see this:
