Hello @Isa He
It is not possible to set component by default on an issue type basis. You can only select it to be project specific.
It is however possible to set the component field during a transition (for example, the created transition) with a post function (assuming that the different issue types have different workflows). This post function is not included in out of the box Jira since you need more advanced post function which can be achieved from using plugins. I am using the JMWE plugin with the post function "set field value". I hope that this information can be of any help!
In my project, I set the component at this transition:
So for the user that is creating the issue, it happens automatically. It's technically not a "default" component for the issue type, but the value is set when the issue is created and will be visible when a user views the issue after creation.
