custom field context delete-button with no security question


i would like to add a feature request for jira, but since we are running on an older version (4.4), i'm not sure, if this problem is still present or not.


when deleting a context of custom field, jira deletes the context without asking, if i'm sure, that i want to delete this context because of possible loss of information. the edit button is placed in the direct neighbourhood. clicking the wrong button, intentionally or not, ends up with a immediate loss of information!


provide a security question like when deleting the whole custom field.

the restore of this information is a pain :)

should i add this feature request or can you help me find the existing ticket for this?

is there any configuration that i don't see, that would help me out?

best regards,

I found the JAC ticket raised in Atlassian. Please see for reference. Kindly vote on it and add yourself in watch list to keep you updated in future.

All the best,
