Introduction

The Customfield Editor for Jira enables normal users to edit options of a customfield without beeing part of the jira-administrators group. To use the Customfield Editor for Jira Documentation select a page in the left navigation such as User Guide, Administrator Guide or REST API Doc. And be sure to select the corresponding app version. Current selected version is 1.9.0

Custom Field Contexts

You can assign multiple contexts on customfields that bind to a project or certain issue types. Each context has its own default value and an isolated set of options. There is always a default/global context which only applies when there is no specific context defined for a certain project or issue type (XOR). Please read the Jira documentation om customfields and contexts or our own Context Documentation.
