    We need this feature, we also have over 1k projects and 8k users. We need to set the work attributes per project.

    Highly requested feature! Our Jira instance runs more than 1000 different projects and having common Work Attributes is not an option. Please consider adding flexibility to set Work Attributes on a project level. Thank you!

    This flexibility is quite important if you start using JIRA/Tempo to track different scopes of work (e.g. Professional Services vs Product Development) where even if you share some attributes, the values available will probably need to be different.

    There could also be a quick win here, where for each attribute we could say if it should appear when logging time for internal issues. Thank you.

    I'm updating this to future consideration.

    Our jira instance includes over 400 projects.

    Projects requesting new work attributes we have to reject since we already have a long list of values available to all users. Adding more values will make search in Work Attributes inconvenient.

    Wondering how other users workaround this.

    I have been told, that this is also a feature we need. Our use is this, we have a like "static" project to log holidays and alike. In this project there are different accounts. The users don't have the permission to change the issues in that project, so they can't change the account. However when logging time the account is mandatory and can be choosen. It doesn't have an effect on the actually logged account, but its confusing.

    Hi Vincent,

    Thanks for the feedback. This is something we have been considering in the past, and we are definitely interested offering features like this in the future. That said, I don't see this being prioritised this year unless it gathers more momentum in the votes. Therefore I'm putting it in Unlikely to implement for now - but we'll keep a close eye on this one going forward.

    This should also include the possibility to make work attributes mandatory or not depending on the project / issuetype for instance.
