On A screen how do I add a field between Project and Issue type


I would like to add on my screens 2 compulsory fields for the whole company between Project and issue type. 

This is not possible in the screen layout on the admin and I believe you can do this by making some changes to the code in the back end? 

Do you have an example on how to do this? 


Regards Tim

I cannot fully understand the question here, sorry. Could you perhaps show some screenshots on what you are trying to accomplish?


So I would like a field called customer and accounts between project and issue type.


I hope this screenshot makes it clear what I would like to achieve.

If they are just custom fields, add them in the "Create/View Screen" of your project screen scheme and re-arrange them to your needs

There's no way to make this happen legitimately. You could hack it with css or jquery but its not a real solution. 

Why would you want this?

I want this as we have multiple departments and these 2 extra fields determine the billing information as we record all out time in JIRA via Tempo. 

We want to show these 2 fields at the top of each create as they make logical sense to fill in first. 

A hack would be fine, any idea where and how to do this.
