It's mostly an administrator's job.
Components and versions can be maintained by project administrators (they also maintain user lists, so reporter and assignee can be affected by them). The other drop-downs are for your system admins to maintain.
Thanks! I have an admin rights, but I am not aware how to make those changes. I have browsed through several docs in order to understand the steps involved, but could not figure that out yet. I thought it might be cus of my role, but as you mentioned that as an admin I could edit the lists of options, so there is something which I am missing here.
In some of the JIRA documentation its mentioned that "Choose the cog icon at top right of the screen, then choose Issues". However, I do not see the cog icon, instead I see Administration link on the top right corner.
Let me know if you have any comments on this.
I had seen that document before. It says "Choose Administration at the top right of your screen. Then choose Issues > Fields > Custom Fields (tab) to open the 'Custom Fields' page"..so forth and so on.
In my case. as I click on Administration at the top right of my screen, then all the projects (for which I have admin rights) appear. I then click on the designated project. Next, I see a page which has a menu on the left panel - containing summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc.. This page also has small detail for each item (summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc..).
However, I do not see any option as mentioned in the instruction of the link sent by you.
It's the menus at the top.
Or, when you click "Administration", it should take you to a list of all the admin options. Which includes fields.
Unless... you aren't a system administrator, in which case I think you do just get a list of projects?
This is what I see after clicking on the administration on the top right corner. After I click on any of the projects, I see page which has a menu on the left panel - containing summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc.. This page also has small detail for each item (summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc..).
Stop clicking on "project", it's a step in completely the wrong direction, and there's no point describing what you're getting there because you've gone down the wrong path.
There is no attachment, sorry (Answers does this - you try to upload a picture, it doesn't tell you it has not worked)
Now, let's step through this carefully.
Hi Anurag, try going to Administration --> Roll down to 'Issues' section --> Search for 'Fields' sub-section and then click on Custom Fields.
There you will see all the fields listed and search for your field. I use ctrl+f and put the name of the field in order to find it easily...
Hi Ramiro, I do not see "Issue Section" after clicking on administration on the top right corner. Instead I see list of Projects. Further clicking on any of the projects, I see page which has a menu on the left panel - containing summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc.. This page also has small detail for each item (summary, IssueTypes, Workflow etc..).
This is interesting. I went through the "list of exclusions" (see link below) for JIRA administrator, and I did not find anything related to modifying field values. So, I thought that JIRA project admin can make these changes.
