When a Jira project is created, a new screen scheme and screens are created by Jira. We'd like to edit that default so that the fields on the screens are custom to our use and the scheme is as well.
Editing it after the fact is very time consuming. Either we need to delete and add the fields to each screen. Or we need to copy each of the default screens and screen scheme and associate the project with that. We'd like it to happen on project creation, since Jira is already creating those screens by default.
Changing the default settings of Jira to create a new project, I think is not possible. The official statement on copying Jira projects can be found here.
But you can create a new project using "shared configuration". The documentation says:
When you are creating a new project, select Create with shared configuration to select an existing project and to use that project's schemes. Note that when you're sharing schemes, any change to the scheme will affect all the projects using that scheme.
Or you can use paid or free third party addon like:
We would like a new screen scheme created that would be unique to the new project. So the "shared configuration" isn't really what we're looking for, since the scheme would be shared with whatever the existing project was.
However, we do have ScripRunner for Jira. Do you have any resources on how to clone a project or create/edit screen schemes and screens with ScriptRunner?
Yes, ScriptRunner for Jira have Built-In Script "Copy Project". Try to create a new, empty project in Jira, to which you will set the required Screens and Schemas. Leave this project blank - always use it as a template for copying / creating a new project.
I may not fully understand your problem.
Using the Script Runner to copy a project will copy:
When I used Script Runner to copy a project here is what happened:
What I'm looking for is for Project Copy to have:
So the desire is that if I change the fields, screens or screen scheme settings on "Copy Default Screen Scheme" it won't affect anything on the "Original Default Screen Scheme".
