Apply project fields to issue types

If you’ve created project fields for your project you can apply them to issue types and specify if they are mandatory.

Adding project fields to your issue types is straightforward - but you do need to create them first.

  1. Select Settings from the Field menu.
  2. Select the Issue Types section.
  1. Any issue types you’ve added to the project will be visible. By default, Defect is always in this list, but you can edit and delete it as described in Adding and editing issue types in Field.
  2. Beside each issue type you’ll see a link: Edit fields.

Note that you can only add new project fields from the Aconex web application, not from the Field mobile app.

  1. To add a project field to an issue type, click the Edit fields link. This opens a list of available single select project fields, in the middle column
The Designs pane showing the list of Project Fields.

You can setup project fields of various types such as date, time, single-select, multi-select, etc., but bear in mind, that only single select fields can be associated with issues types in Field.

  1. Click the plus icon to the right of the project field you want to add to the issue type. Note that the order that you add fields will be the order that they appear in the issue.
