Duplicate field for Category Issue Field

For some reason, I have duplicate category fields for all my issues under one project. When I go to project settings -> Issues Types I only have selected one custom field for the category but when I check the project in the list view, the category is added twice without being able to unselect one, it's either both or none. -> Here is a short video to better understand the issue.

Hi Vali,

maybe you've got confused with system and custom fields?

"category" is a system field in order to select each project category/ group so your team can view work across related projects in one place - see

Of course, you can create a custom field with the same name which I highly recommend to avoid because searching for issues will get complicated.
