I apologize if someone already ask this before...but I cannot search the answer here. basically I am using 4.4.1 and I cannot remove certain issue types from being global or in the default issue types scheme. THis gets a bit annoying as my default scheme is getting bigger and bigger on the new issues types that I just added (when in reality those new issue types is only for one issue type scheme)
It's an ancient bug. The key thing is, before anyone starts using jira, make a copy of the default issue type scheme and call it "out of the box scheme" or something, then whenever you create a new project make sure it uses this.
Because you can't remove them from the default scheme. And the longer projects use the default scheme, the more likely they are to use various issue types that you never intended them to use, then you can't switch them to a simpler scheme.
Sorin, not really. The default scheme has some logic and reason behind it, so I don't think Atlassian will ever remove it.
I don't think people really mind it being there as a "contains all of them automatically list" either. The problem is mostly that the damn thing gets right in the way because there's no way to stop it from inflicting itself on every new project.
Jamie linked to the main bug already in his answer, and I'd recommend a quick look/vote on the linked issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-8926 as well.
This is a feature, not a bug.
If all projects inherit from some new scheme and a given default scheme is 100% unused, what's the point of keeping the default scheme? If it's just to keep administrators from accidentally making changes to several projects because they aren't paying attention, reassigning all the projects to some new scheme just kicks the can down the road a step further since the exact same issues can crop up, just with different non-default schemes.
Sorry to say, there's no way to program around people not reading the manual.
I read the manual and I'm clearly understanding the need for default schemes.
But you can't call it a feature if it's implemented... ... "like that".
Which results in enormous administrative work. (Create project -> assign a wanted scheme -> delete the useless inherited scheme)
So how can this be a feature? We don't have a DRTL issue here. The idea was great but it was implemented like a bug.... ..... for 6 years now.
And it's not only the issue type scheme. Same goes for:
(Did i forgot something?)
Nikolas I completely agree with you, I am having a hard time as an Admin to make my team understand how hard it is to keep changing stuff for them , like I always have to change the default screen schemes, add new fields for them , add new new workflows. There is no point in having default stuff created to a project when we would want to change it in future anyways.
