For most fields to appear on a view screen, you need to ensure they have data in them

For an edit screen, they always appear if you have put them on the edit screen (admin -> issues -> screens -> screen used for edit).

Thanks Nic!

I gues what I'm trying to say is I would like it to be on the view screen as a default similar to the "Reporter" or "Assignee". Is that possible? and have it be unassigned?

 

 

It's the same answer - make sure it has a value
