Custom Field configuration schemes API

We can assign project to only one custom field configuration scheme from JIRA admin UI. Even if this is the case JIRA API returns list of projects for give custom field configration scheme. Can anyone explain why is this?


final CustomField field;

for(FieldConfigScheme fieldConfigScheme: field.getConfigurationSchemes()){

List<Project> projects = fieldConfigScheme.getAssociatedProjectObjects();
