Can I set up different screen schemes on the same issue type for different projects

I am a new Jira user currently setting up Jira for our tech team. I have created an issue type called Hardware. We have two types of hardware: internal and project hardware, I have set up an internal hardware project to track our internal hardware. All other projects will refer to project hardware. The fields will differ slightly between internal and project hardware fields. Is it possible to set up different screen schemes on the same issue type but for different projects? So for example in my internal hardware project the hardware issue would have one screen scheme and in another project the hardware issue would have a different screen scheme?

Hello @Christina Gheorghe  As far as I know, you can create a different screen schema for each project and then use it for the same issue type, since you're talking about separated projects, it shouldn't be a problem.

 

Here are the steps to create a screen schema in case you need them:

  1. Navigate to the Issues Administration Page and select Screen Schemes from the left sidebar.
  2. "Add Screen Scheme"
  3. Name your Screen and write a description and choose a Default Screen.
  4. Associate an Issue Operation with a Screen.

 

Hope this helps.

Yes it does, thank you!

Awesome, have a nice day!

This is what I have done to accomplish the need: 

 

1. Create new ISSUE TYPE:
a) Name --> this is the name that appears as issueType
b) Description --> optional
c) Standard Issue Type (unless you want it to be sub-task)

2. Create new SCREEN:
a) Name --> The name of the screen (for easy referencing use the same as IssueType you just created)
b) Description --> Provide more information about the screen that will help us easily adjust when/if needed
c) In the Field Tab add all the fields you want the issue to have (e.g. Summary, Description, Assignee etc...)

3. Create new SCREEN SCHEME:
a) Name --> The name of the screen scheme (for easy referencing use the same as IssueType you just created)
b) Description --> Provide more information about the screen scheme that will help us easily adjust when/if needed
c) Default Screen --> Select the previously configured SCREEN (from step 2)

4. Navigate to Issue Type Screen Scheme:
a) Locate the issue type screen scheme that is applied for the project which you are configuring
b) Under Action --> Configure
c) Associate an issue type with a screme scheme:
i) Issue Type --> Select the IssueType which you are configuring
ii) Screen Scheme --> Select the screen scheme you previously created for the screen and based on the issueType

5. Navigate to Issue Type Schemes:
a) Add Issue Type Scheme
i) Scheme Name --> Name it after the project for which you are creating
ii) Description --> Provide more information about the issue type scheme that will help us easily adjust when/if needed
iii) Default Issue Type --> leave at None
iv) Drag & Drop all the issue Types you want to have under this scheme (the ones created in step 1)
b) Locate the Issue Type Scheme you just created --> and Associate it with the project where you want it to apply

 

Note: This scenario is if you want completely customized issue Types, different fields based on the issueType, and all to apply within one same project. 

If you want to tweak around them across multiple projects, just associate the screen schemes with the Issue Type Screen Schemes --> then associate the Issue Type Scheme with the project

While I can do all steps above and appreciate all the details listed, I can only seem to apply one scheme to a project.  Once I attempt to associate a new scheme dedicated to some issue types it wants to migrated all other issues.  I don't want that and don't understand why it can't just apply to the issue types selected.
