I create a new project called "My Project" with key "MY". When I do that, the following also get created
Most projects will use already existing schemes. In fact, it's extreme rarely that a project needs something new. So this automatic creation of an Issue Type scheme and a Workflow scheme just adds cleanup tasks that have to be done every time a new project is created.
A new project is automatically assigned the already-existing Default Permission Scheme.
It's automatically assigned the already-existing Default Notifications scheme.
And the already-existing Default Issue Type Screen scheme.
And the Default Field Configuration.
So why does it have to get a new Issue Type and Workflow schemes. Why can't it just be assigned the defaults for those?
After clicking the Add Project button the Select Project Type dialog appears and presents six types. If you chose the last one, Jira Classic, when the project is created it uses the already-existing default schemes. If, on the other hand, you select on of the other types, new schemes are created. The new schemes are based on the defaults, are essentially copies of them. But they are new, separate schemes. In my case, what was bothersome was I was creating several new projects that were all supposed to use the same schemes. But I was getting a new, separate scheme for each one. Half a dozen identical schemes where I only needed one. So now I select Jira Classic almost every time I create a new project.
