Creating new project always creates a new issue type scheme
After upgrading to JIRA 6.2, all new projects are created with a new Issue Type Scheme.
Before upgrade, JIRA used to pick the Default Issue Type Scheme.
This is part of the new changes being introduced in JIRA which helps new users get started faster.
From JIRA 6.2 to 6.3, If you create a project using the Project Type JIRA Classic or Project Management then it would use the Default Schemes (Issue Type, Workflow and Screen) for your project.
- After JIRA 6.4, If you create a project using the Project Type JIRA Default Schemes (JIRA Classic was renamed) it would use the Default Schemes (Issue Type, Workflow and Screen). The Project Management type now creates its own Schemes.
After JIRA 7, You can create a project using a shared configuration of an existing project. See the screenshot below.
