Reuse custom field in another project


Am trying to use a custom field that is already in use for one project, to be available and usable in another project.

I added to the field in the new project Issue Screen Scheme by which it shows up on the Create Screen.

But the values are not showing.

I would appreciate any insight on the steps to achieve this

Check that the field configuration does not hide it in the new project, and that the field has the right "context" - you'll need to check that in the list of custom fields (it may say "only valid in projects A, B and C" for example)

Also, as an admin, try the "where's my field" option
