Issue creation from a Board does not honor default issue type

This post is not about the main "Create Issue" interface.

The default issue type for my Project is Bug. When I load the Board for my Project I can scroll down and click "+ Create" to create one or more issues with just a type and title and no other information. The default type for the first issue I create is Task. If I change the type during creation to Bug then it will continue to create Bugs for further issues created in the same window. However, if I open a new window or close and re-open the site then I will again be presented Task as the selected issue type to create.

I see two reasonable solutions to this bug:

  1. Remember the last used issue type per user, like the Create Issue interface does, including across sessions and logins.
  2. Start each load of the interface with the default issue type of the Project.

Hi @sparr 

This only applies to company managed projects

And it's not a bug, the explanation solution point 1 you have referred is the reason here

If a user is already created a issue the next time same user tries to create an issue, the user will get the last used issue type as default in same browser session

If the session is different, it will fallback to default issue type



No, it won't fall back to default issue type. It falls back to Task, regardless of what the default issue type is. That's the bug.

(if it fell back to the default issue type, that would still be a much smaller bug, since it would be inconsistent with how the Create Issue interface remembers your previous issue type)
