i want to associate custom field to all new projects by default

Hello Team,

I am new to JIRA,

we are creating projects using REST API IN JIRA. we are using custom fields in the project.

while i create a project in JIRA i needs to add custom field to various project manually.

is there any way to associate it automatically?



Thanks in advanced.

Hi Yashesh,

One way to do it  is to:

  • Copy default screen to for instance Default Screen 2
  • Every time that you create a new custom field then assosiat it to the Default 2 screen
  • Make sure that the new projects are using Default Screen 2

If you are using JIRA 7 or above and the new projects are similar (workflow, issue types, etc) then you could create new projects using "Shared Configuration" and have one as template which has the Default Screen 2





Thanks Carlos For quick responce.

can you please tell me how can i create project using shared configuration using REST API?

it would be great help.
