How to make a checkbox 'checked' by default in specific project? Edited

Hey,

I've a checkbox custom field we're using in all of our workflows. Normaly, it's a 50/50 chance if the box needs to be checked or not.

But in one specific project, the checkbox should be 'checked' by default. Any ideas how to acomplish this?

Thanks in advance, Simon.

Hi Simon - You need to add a new context to the configuration for your custom field.

You can set the context to apply only to your specific project. Then you can set the default value for that context so that the box is checked by default.

From the JIRA help docs:

Hey Sam,

thanks for your answer. Unfortunately, while trying to apply your solution, I've ralized that my field isn't in fact a custom field, but rather a worklog attribute from Tempo.

So I'll check what options I have with that.

Thanks anyways! :)

Simon
