  • Multiple Issue Types Scheme are set as the default instead of only Default Issue Type Scheme.

The following appears in the atlassian-jira.log:

jadmin 922x258x1 ws5lk /plugins/servlet/project-config/ATL/summary [jira.projectconfig.contextproviders.SummaryContextProvider] Unable to load project summary panel
    at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.config.manager.IssueTypeSchemeManagerImpl.getIssueTypesForConfigScheme(IssueTypeSchemeManagerImpl.java:276)
    at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.config.manager.IssueTypeSchemeManagerImpl.getIssueTypesForProject(IssueTypeSchemeManagerImpl.java:247)

  1. Check if there any entry that is associated to non-existing project by running the following SQL on JIRA's database:

    select * from configurationcontext where project not in (select id from project);
  2. Check if there is a default configuration on the database:

    select * from configurationcontext where id = 10000 and fieldconfigscheme = 10000 and customfield = 'issuetype' and projectcategory is null and project is null;


There is Issue Types Scheme(s) that is associated with project(s) that no longer exist. This is tracked in  JRA-29446 - Getting issue details... STATUS .


Always back up your data before performing any modification to the database. If possible, try your modifications on a test server.

  1. If any records are found with the first SQL query in the Diagnosis section, remove the record with the following:

    delete from configurationcontext where project not in (select id from project);
  2. If no records are found with the second SQL query of the Diagnosis section, please add the following:

    insert into configurationcontext values (10000, null, null, 'issuetype', 10000);
  3. Restart JIRA
