JIRA - Custom Project Types

Mirek Community Champion Nov 05, 2013

Hi all,

In new versions of JIRA example - 6.1.x) there is a new way of creating projects. Now we can choose what type of a project we want to create and this will automatically associate project with different configuration schemes. Great!

My question is short and simple.. Is it possible (or will be possible in the near future) to somehow (from the UI or by modify a file) add a custom Project Type next to the default types?

There is also a feature request on similar functions, please vote on it if you would like to see it implemented.


AFAIK you can create your own template by following this doc:

So coding is the only possible solution? How about coding plugin for JIRA onDemand?
