when I'm trying to bulk edit some issues custom field, I can't see needed custom field to edit. The problem could be, that issues are from different projects. If I select issues only from one project, everything is fine and custom field is available.
In there any way to bulk edit issues not only within one project?
I'm just guessing here but do you have different workflows? I mean you can limit the global edit right on every step in your workflow using properties. Maybe some of the issue are in a status where you are NOT allowed to edit them? Don't know if JIRA checks that limitation (which would be crucial because otherwise you could edit issues that you were not supposed to edit)
It's the version! Try to do a bulk edit and go to the bottom of the screen . There you have a list of non-available options/actions. Expand the list and you will see that version fields can only be editin for issues within the same project!
yes, you can do this. It works on my side where I have the same custom fields in both projects and I also have a common field configuration.
Question: are those custom fields you don't see available for both projects? Are you using a common field configuration in both projects?
EDIT:As we now learned: Not possible for Version picker fields, since the values are project specific.
I have to contradict Rambanam in one point, the field don't have to be in the edit screen.
His second point is valid: But I guess you have the same permissions in both projects, or?
Is the field defined for both projects, i. e. the context is global or both projects are selected?
to change custom field during bul edit it should follow the followin rules
The 'Change Custom Fields' operation is available only if:
as per last point the issues are all of the same project, due to this you are unable to edit the custom field
