Is there a way to associate components with Issue types?

I want to populate the components field based on Issue type chosen. Is there a way to do that?

Not really. Components belong to projects.

You could try to wedge in a spot of javascript to remove components from the selection lists based on the issue type, but you'd still need the full list at the project level.

I have added certain components in a project. How can i make use of those components in my project?

Components are offered as a field on issues during create and edit, so you just select the ones you want on an issue.

If you're missing the field, check screens and field configurations.

Has this changed at all in the last 5 years? We would like to be able to do this.

Nope, components remain project-level items.
