Pre set custom field value based on project


I would like to set a value from a select list as default value based on Project. For example

Project A will be automatically set to value X

Project B will be automatically set to value Y

Project C will be automatically set to value Z

where value X,Y and Z is a select custom field in Jira. Could the custom product field has a preset default value by project or ony other idea to solve this problem?

The reason that I would like to set this is because I need to have a query to finds bugs that are currently tracked in a different projects and I would like to set it automatically from the background instead of asking users to set it by themselves.

thanks in advance,

If you are using contexts make sure the field is present on the create issue screen, otherwise it will not be set, as the context just prefills the field on the screen.

This answer works.  It is necessary to define at least 1 context for each different value you want.  Thomas Heidenreich's caveat is worth reading, though I have not confirmed it still applies.

Hi, thanks for your answer.. it's working by using context.
