External issue:


Is it possible, using extended fields, to crate a custom field of type 'Category’ that will display, in a drop down, all the categories available to that issue?

Yes, it’s possible... But why do you need another Category field? Is this for issues?

#2 Updated by Raz Baluchi over 11 years ago

Not for issues, although I can think of use cases where it might be useful to have multiple categories. The specific use I had in mind was for projects, for example if I wanted to be able to define a default category for new issues within that project.
