Renaming a System Field in JIRA (must remains Project dependant)


We want to rename the system field 'Component in Beamline, but this must be done for one project only, without impact on other projects housed in JIRA.

I saw already the topics below, but is it possible to make these changes only relevant for one Project?

Any other solution?

Thanks a lot in advance for sharing your advice and knowledge on this subject...

Not for a single project, no, at least none that I could think of. You have to remember places like the issue navigator could contain data from any number of projects.

Depending what you are trying to do, why not create a custom field the way you want it, then use a field configuration scheme to hide the system field for that project?

Hi Matthew,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Actually, I thought of the possibility to use a custom field, and hide the "Component" system field.

But besides, the possibility to have a default Assignee related with each component is very useful for this project.

So we will try in a first time to keep "component" as it is, with its features, and see if this naming question is a real problem for the users, or if they will just forget the point in two days...

Have a nice day.
