Is there a way to create some custom fields available for project admins so that they assign a value to it. And when an issue is created, the custom field will be populated automatically with the values assigned by the project admins. The default value of the custom field is applicable for all projects and so if there is a way for the project admins it would be very helpful for them.
Hi again! You would need to make the project admins members of jira-administrators group. They could then set up project specific contexts for the custom field but you'd have to trust them with the whole jira admin rights. Unfortunately there is no in-between.
Here is the documentation on how to setup per project configuration, you create a new context per project.
I too have some project specific fields and require to have project administrators' maintain the option set on a per project basis. The Add-on does not work as advertised as only jira-administrators can edit the options set. Further it lacks the standard controls to order the options.
This is frustrating, what are the options available to myself and other admins?
1. See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-3156. Giving project admins possibilities to edit option values of their project is just part of this feature request. It has over 900 votes, but Atlassian does currently work on this, because they decided to implement other things first. 2. With Project Specific Select Field plugin https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/jira.plugin.projectspecificselectfield.jpssf project administrators are able to add new option values. They also can disable options. (If add and disable does not work for you, could you please create a bug report at https://bitbucket.org/hski/projectspecificselectfield-public/issues/new? I really much like to solve this, if there is a problem.) I am planning to allow project administrators also to edit and sort option values in the next release. I cannot give a release date, but guess somewhere in January.
My key point here is that as installed to a JIRA v6.2.7 system, the Add-in is not reliable.
Find attached a view of my established Custom Field named 'Project Specific'
Also attached a view of this field on the project named 'Orca' when I look at this after logging on as a project administrator for Orca.
It may display the filed options on a subsequent re-visit to the Project->Project Specific view but it appears to have an initialisation issue.
I consider this a serious defect. I'd like to understand if you'd investigate and patch this, please?
It started as any story starts, on a normal, rainy day. Admin meets App, and her name was Klok2, and like any first relationship we were both trying to make it work but neither one knew what...
