How can I set a default component for the project

I would like to be able to have a default component for a project whenever a user creates an issue for that project. This would be for issues created through the web interface.

You can do it only via some javascript hacks in the field description. That also won't work in 5.1 during inline edit.

Thanks for the quick response Jobin!

Hi Jeffrey,

did you find any options to that problem (excluding javascript hacks)?

Many thanks,
