How do you change the order and add/remove fields on new issue type?

I'd like to be able to remove: components and priority and summary, and move Candidate Name to the top where components currently is for issue type candidate. How do I do this?Create issue - Jira 2019-09-04 18-28-31.png

@Gar Lee  , if you are the jira admin, you can update the screen fields as in to remove and move them.

But 'Summary' is always needed for a jira issue. You cannot create an issue if you dont have it on the screen. So dont remove it. 


You can not delete the mandatory fields. (The fields with red star). But you can rearrange the field sequence by following these steps:

Go to Admin > Projects > Go to Project Admin >  Screens > Select Screen  you want to change.

Now in Field Tab rearrange the fields by dragging up and down or delete them.

Hope this work for you.
