In JIRA 6.2, it seems that the choice of a default priority is global to all projects. Is there a way to make a choice for a given project only? Does that require making a custom field and going the route of changing screens, etc. to use that field instead of priority?
This was already answered a couple of times. Take a look here:
It's not possible to indicate that for particular Project or Issue Type. Providing schemes for these also. You can try Extended Schemes for JIRA which allows you to set schemes and default values for particular Projects and particular Issue Types not only for Priorities but also for Resolutions and Issue Types.
Add a 'Update Issue Field' post function to the 'create' transition.
Make sure to add this post function to the number 1 spot - before the issue is created. :
The following will be processed after the transition occurs
