Is it possible to create a field that is a drop down list of ALL the projects currently in our Jira?

I am trying to create a custom issue type, and I want one of our fields to basically just be a dropdown list of every single project we have active in our Jira currently.

Is that something that can actually be done?

There's one built in already.

Go to Admin -> Custom fields -> Add custom field, select "project picker" and add it.

There is one caveat though - if a user has NO visibility of the project at all, then it will be hidden from the list.

Thank you so much! I will definitely give that a try. It shouldn't be too bad regarding the visibility. Generally speaking only our admins will have access to the only project that uses this field!

What if I want it to list down the projects from some other JIRA instance.Is there a way o achieve it?

You will need to find or write a field add-on that can interrogate the other instance to get a list of projects to present as options
