Is It Possible To Adjust Screens Based on Project?

Hi, we currently have a few primary screens that we use across all projects. Is it possible to change what displays on Screen ABC based on which project it is being used in? Or do we simply need to make a new screen for each project and configure each specifically to what that project will want shown?

Thanks!

If you want completely different fields you have to configure new screens and assign them via screen schemes, if you just want e.g. other options for you checkboxes you can use the context configuration for the fields and assign different values to different projects.

Thomas probably wanted to add https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Associating+Screen+and+Issue+Operation+Mappings+with+an+Issue+Type for you - this talks more about "issue types", but it's project level too - the combinations are actually hung off project and issue type, so you can say "Project X uses screens A, and project Y uses screens B". You also have the ability to say "Bugs in project X use screens A, bugs in Project Y use screens B, and all the other issue types in those project use C"

Beautiful, thanks Thomas and Nic! Got it to work as suggested.
