Can you create custom fields for different projects? Someone told me that "Custom fields are common to other projects as well, it cannot be assigned to one project."
This is in response to "How do I pre-populate text to a description field on JIRA?"
Certain fields are common to all Jira issues like description and summary. Other custom fields can be global or unique to specific projects. I have had a similar issue where I wanted to either append or change the description field on a single project or issue type. To do this I have used ScriptRunner or JSU to make the change in the projects workflow on issue create.
Hello @Oanh Nguyen
You can create custom fields and add them in any project you want.
For example, I created 3 custom fields with text area for bugs description, so when a bug is created, the user fill in the description the problem and in those 3 fields:
Steps to reproduce
Describe how it works
Describe how it should work.
For our team, these fields are easier to see.
I hope this helped, if there's anything you would like to know I'm glad to help.
