Thanks for voting and commenting on this issue. Your feedback is key to helping us understand how you use JIRA so we can continue improving your experience. We have reviewed this issue over the last few days.
Simplifying project setup, configuration, and maintenance is one of the JIRA team's top priorities right now. We are in the early stages of a big investment in making it easier to get started with a JIRA project and maintain a large number of projects at scale.
We expect that our work will eventually incorporate additional flexibility for configuring field behavior on a per-project basis, but we can't make any commitments on exactly what we will support or when this will be released.
We will continue to update this issue as we release new capabilities for project administration. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or feedback.
It's important to understand that we rarely try to implement individual features from jira.atlassian.com, but instead take a holistic look at the problem and use feedback from the comments here and a dozen other sources of customer input to solve the core problems.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or feedback.
