I created a custom field(select list) called 'Type', and in Project A, I have 3 issue types, is there a way to configure 'Type' with different select list options for each issue type under Project A? Thanks
Yes this is possible via a Custom Field Context. To do this, go to Administration > Custom Fields, click the Cogwheel icon on the far right side of your custom field, select Configure.
Select the "Add new context" option. You can specify the Select List options for particular issue types and particular projects from here by adding a new context for each Project/Issue type combo. :)
Yes, this is a long-standing bug in Jira - once you've configured one project context, it drops off the list. That's fine if you're only configuring by project, but if you're trying to do project and issue type, it can become a problem.
I don't seem to have the bug report bookmarked, but I don't remember that there are any work-arounds. I think you can sort part of it out by making a context quite wide initially and then narrowing it, but that only helps with the first time you run into it and it's not ideal. Also, you can force it by putting contexts directly into the database, but that only works for schemes not currently in use and I have no idea if it works in any version above Jira 3.3
Hmm, I seemed to have misunderstood that. Sorry my solution didn't help.
Ahh, I might've missed that... it seems that the contexts apply only on a per-project basis... ):
Sorry that my solution didn't help. I think the only viable workaround is to have different custom fields for different value sets.
