Default priority field is still displayed


I created a customer field named 'Priority' and added it to the screen for a project (same screen for create/edit/default).  It shows up fine when creating a ticket but when viewing all the issues w/in this project, the default priority also shows up which we don't want.

What to do?

Thanks in advance.

Adding a Field (whatever it is) to the Create/Edit/View screens will not automatically remove any default field like the "Priority" field in the screens. 

You will have to hide the fields you don't want to see in the field configuration scheme for that issue type of your project.

also, having a custom field with the same name as a system field may lead to confusion if they both happen to be displayed

It will be extraordinarily difficult to write queries with fields with duplicate names, to say the leasat. This is a major red flag in any JIRA system and it's extremely undesirable to have willingly created a duplicate field. :/
