Jira Sub-Task hide Fields

Hallo again,

we are currently working on adding sup-tasks to one of our projects.
Is it possible to add custom fields to the sub-task?

We have a Project called "Kundenkontakt" and a sub-task issue type called "Kundenkontakt Sub-Task".

I want to add a sub-task to "Kundenkontakt" with other fields than the parrent issue (Kundenkontakt). Is there a scheme or something similar?

 

Sorry for the question but Jira is still relatively new for me.

 

Best Regards, Björn

Sub-tasks are mostly just seen in the same way as far as the configuration is concerned.

To have different fields for top-level and sub-task issues can be done in several ways, you just need to tell JIRA to use different schemes for the types.  I tend to do it with screens myself, but you can use field contexts and/or field configurations too.  For screens in your case, you set up two sets of screens - one to use by default and a second for the sub-tasks (I'd copy the default one(s) to make the sub-task screens).  You then change the fields on the second set of screens and then use the "issue type screen scheme" to tell JIRA "for sub-tasks use these screens, and for everything else, use the defaults in this project"

I'm need something similar ... Steps I followed

1. Create a New screen

2. Added fields to this screen

3. Assoicated Scrren Issue Type and screen scheme

But still all the fields are display...

 

Am i missing any step?

Associating the issue type screen scheme with the project I think
