Issue and request types in classic and next-gen projects

In classic projects, each request type is associated with an issue type. These issue types can be shared across projects in your Jira site. Request type fields are based on their associated issue type’s fields.

To make more fields available to a request type, you need to edit the associated screen in your Jira settings. Editing this associated screen may impact other request types with the same screen.

In next-gen projects, each project has its own request types that can’t be shared across projects. This means that each next-gen project has its own request types that are independent of other projects.
