I've been told I need to have a custom field that allows each project lead to manage it similar to how the Version field is currently set up; however, the Version field is already being used for something else.
The field needs to:
Please let me know if there's a way to do this. I'm not sure whether it involves writing some custom code or maybe using a plug in out there.
Project Specific Select Field plugin might be a solution for your problem.
@Ryan Guess you talking about this plugin? Yes, I dropped development and removed it from Marketplace a couple of time ago, but after getting requests from users I picked up development again. Now it is a commercial plugin and available for JIRA 5.1 and 6.0 (6.1 already in planning).
Requirement 1: Be managed on a project-by-project basis. Values in Project A should not be allowable in Project B.
You can use Context option to change the project(s) and issue type(s) for which a given 'Default Value' and 'Options' will apply (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+a+Custom+Field):
Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators global permission.
Choose the cog icon at top right of the screen, then choose Issues. Select Fields > Custom Fields to open the 'Custom Fields' page. Keyboard shortcut: g + g + start typing custom fields
Locate the relevant custom field and choose cog icon > Configure.
Click the Add new contextlink . The 'Add configuration scheme context' page will be displayed (see below).
- Under 'Add configuration scheme context', enter a 'Label' and 'Description' for your new context — these are used for administrative purposes only and will not be shown to your end-users.
- Under 'Choose applicable issue types', select the issue type(s) to which you want this Default Value and Options to apply. You can select Any issue types if you wish.
- Under 'Choose applicable contexts', select the project(s) to which you want this Default Value and Options to apply. Note that this will apply to only issues with the selected issue type(s) as above.
A custom field can only have one context per JIRA project. So you cannot have multiple contexts for different issue types in the same project.
Requirements 2, 3, 4 and 5: Be managed by the project lead via the project admin section, not the system admin.
There are only two fields whose values you can originally edit in admin section: components and versions.
It is quite difficult and complicated to achieve these requests. I'm not sure if this is really neccesary.
If you really need these features you can try with:
a.) Script Runner and Behaviours plugin (programming skills are necessary)
Link to example of the Behaviours plugin for: "Add or remove options to single or multi-select fields":
b.) use functions of other plugins like eFeed, table grid plugin for JIRA to get information of custom field options from jira database (you need to be experienced Jira user and the know jira's database structure)
1. Prepare special project for "Change management" of custom field values
2. Create custom fields for change custom field options and relate them to screens of the project (for edit and delete options fill content of the drop down lists from the jira database)
3. Allow special users to use this project and edit values through transition postfunctions - one for create, one for edit, one for delete
(workflow: customers can request changes, special users (e.g. your project leads) can resolve requests).
Sadly, no. I'm still stuck and having to use an alternate unpreferred solution for now.
I saw that there was plug-in that handled this logic but it appeared the developer stopped supporting it and it doesn't work with the most recent version of Jira. It would be great if someone would be able to pick it up and keep it up to date, but I can't hold my breath on it any longer.
I'm hoping someone out there has some suggestions that could work for my requirements.
