It is limitation have already identified few years ago, and I have never understand why ?
When a Customfield is created, it has a default context applicable on any Project/Issue.
When you created an additional Context, you have 2 possibilities for specifying when the Context is applicable :
It is not possible to select an Issue Type without a Project ... Ok, why not ?
But as soon as a Project is used in a Context, it is no more usable for creating a new Context.
By example, if we have 3 projects (PA, PB & PC) and 3 Issue Types (IT1, IT2 & IT3).
On CustomField creation, we have : Ctxt 1 applicable on Any Project/Issue Type
If we create a context for PA/IT1, then it no more possible to create the other combinations :
What is the functional reason of such limitation ?
In most of part of JIRA, the Context to use is always deduced on the pair Project/IssueType.
The only possible workaround since 5 years (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-16027) is to created a new customfield for each additional Context needed ... It is not really practice, mainly if we have to use this field in JQL.
Does somebody has a technical workaround (patch of the ConfigureCustomField action) ?
Thanks by advance.
