      Atlassian Update – 23 October 2018

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks for voting and commenting on this issue. I’m Nathan a Product Manager at Atlassian that is working on project configuration for next-gen projects.

      We have been working hard on simplifying project setup and configuration, as one of the Jira team's top priorities right now. We are making a big investment to make project configuration in Jira so intuitive, that anyone can do it. This is no small feat, given that we need to retain the power and configurability that our users expect.

      To do this we have been iteratively working on next-gen projects (formally known as Agility projects), starting with a simple experience and adding more powerful features as we go.

      I have been eagerly watching this ticket for sometime, waiting for the opportunity to work on this feature. I wanted to update everyone to say that my team is actively starting work on bringing default system values to next-gen projects. This will be delivered in two parts:

      1. Default values for custom fields and for the following system fields: Labels and Priority.
      2. Default values for the Description system field.

      Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or feedback.

      Original request description

      I would like to provide default values not only for custom, but also for system fields.

      An example:
      Depending on the issue type, I would like to provide different default values for the field "Description" which help users to fill in e.g. the details of a bug issue.
