Common select list for multiple custom fields

Hi All,

We have a project where we have a number of select list custom fields and all these fields have common set of values. For eg, Project Status, Development Status, Team Status are custom fields with common values as Red, Green and Amber. Can we have something where we can use the same select list for multiple fields in Jira so that there values have same id's and hence making it easier to pull data using REST API or else we need to pull id's for all the values , though they have common values but different id's.

Thanks and Regards,

Jenin C M

No, there's nothing in Jira that provides many fields from one list, except the versions fields.

You'll need to find or write a plugin to provide that. I'm afraid the only ones I've seen are very much like versions though - they have dedicated and specific purposes, which makes them less functional as generalised fields.
