Single value component/s for specific issue type

Is it possible for the component/s field to be set to a single value for e.g. bugs alone using Jira Cloud? If not, is there a way to add a custom field which mimics the benefits of the default component/s field, which can then be associated to bugs?

I'm afraid not.  On server versions, there's a minor tweak you can make to the template that makes the field single-select.  On cloud, you don't have access to the templates.

You could stop using components and swap to a single-select, but you will lose component lead functionality, the ability for the project admins to maintain the component list, and none of the built-in reporting can be swapped over to report on it.

That's what I suspected. Thanks a million for your reply
