I want to change custom field, which is a numerical field in JIRA to a dropdown list of predefined numerical values.
Example of the dropdown list:
50 - Trivial
100 - Easy
200 - Medium
300 - Hard
500 - Herculean
How to define this list in JIRA and how to assign it to an already existing numerical field?
The easy bit - add a new select-list custom field
The hard bit is the conversion. You simply can't convert numbers to select options.
The standard answer to this would be to run a filter to find all your "Easy" issues, then bulk-edit them, adding the new data to the select list and removing the numbers. Repeat for each of the new options,
Yeah, figured the easy part. But I was hoping you could give custom dropdowns values like you can in Bugzilla. Surely if Bugzilla can do it, JIRA can do it.
You can give a select list whatever options you want. I'm not sure what you're actually looking for here.
