Wrong project name highlighted while creating issue


I have a complex problem at hand.

There is a project A which has a ticket-x1.In This ticket, i link another Ticket -x2 from project B

Now if i click the "+" button to add Issues in epic in ticket-x1 the form that comes up has in default the project set to Project B and not Project A.Is there any way to get it set as project A other than ofcourse manually choosing it in the select list.

I looked a loyt but couldnt find out a workaround.Has anyone here?

Hi Sap,

Normally the creat issue wizard will always propose the project in which you've created an issue last (in this case Project B). I don't think you can change this behaviour.

Best regards,
