Hello,

you can use a new context for your custom field. Check this link.

For example, I created a custom context called "Restricted Context", which is applied for two issue types: Task and Bug for my project "Jedi Order" and have values:

  • Restricted Option 1
  • Restricted Option 2
  • Restricted Option 3

Be aware, that when I want to edit this custom field value in the project (n my case Jedi Order), that has a custom context configured for a different issue type (the one, that the custom context does not include, for example - story) - the custom field will not appear there.

Make sure to configure it correctly.

I just realize, that there is one restriction here: You can have only 1 context per project.

Another solution can be found here. And also this thread might be useful.
