Stop JIRA from creating Screen Schemes and Workflow Schemes for every new project created

Hello JIRA Gurus,

I am using JIRA v7.4.4#74006-sha1:cbc13d9.

Whenever I create a new JIRA project of the type 'Scrum Software Development', JIRA automatically creates  and assigns the following to the newly created project -

<project name>: Scrum Default Screen Scheme,

<project name>: Scrum Issue type screen scheme and 

<project name>: Software Simplified Workflow Scheme


I do not want JIRA to create these default Schemes. I have designed custom schemes and want the new projects to get assigned to them automatically.


As a workaround, I have created a JIRA project and assigned all the custom schemes to it. I use it only as template while creating a new project by choosing 'Create with shared configuration'.


Are there any better ways to handle this problem?

Stop using the template. The template is hard coded to create new schemes.

@Anantha Madhava What you are doing is the correct way. The better way to handle this is developing a new project template (If you have expertise in software development) .

Hi Anantha,

creating new projects with shared configuration is the best and easiest way to avoid new schemes with every project.
