Can I customize the fields that are available when using the Create button at the top of the page?

I'm not sure the best way to explain what I want to do, but I will try.  Please ask questions, if clarification is needed.

For my domain, when using the Create button in the page header, can I customize the fields available after the project has been selected.

Once a project has been selected, I want the fields displayed to be a set of default fields I've chosen for the project.

This is the URL that is displayed when hovering the Create button.

I know I can do this on an individual basis by using the "configure fields" options (see right-hand corner of images 2 and 3).  But I want the options limited for everyone all at once, and not having to "visit" every user's system.

Thank you for any insight you can offer.

I found a way to kind of work with this.

  • Go to the Project Settings page
  • Screens
  • Find the "Create Issue" screen in the list


  • Click the link to the "Create Issue" screen
  • Add the fields you want available for the screen

NOTE:  This also affects the fields available when you are creating request types.  The fields available for use are the same fields listed in the "Create Issue" screen.

I'm still new to this, so there is likely a better solution.  Please provide any other suggestions.

@Lynn Shriver, in fact this is how the Jira products work. By editing the default Create Issue screen it will modify it for all issue types that use the default Creat Issue screen. If you wan to only change a specific issue type for a specific project then copy the default, rename and modify to your needs. Finally assign the screen to the project/issue type you want.
