Hi Vishnu,

Are we talking JSM or JWM, so is it a company managed project or a team managed project?

If its JSM, and you believe the field has been removed from the 'Edit' Screen, then it should not appear.

The fact that it does, suggest that you may not be looking at the 'screen' you think you are?

If everything below here, is known, then I apologise.

From Issue Types inside the JSM project -> you see the Issue Type Scheme and then for the Issue types, you can see the Screen schemes for each issue type.

Open the Screen scheme and check the screen for Edit? Is it a seperate screen to View, as the default is that they are the same screen.

If you want edit to be different, then you need to copy the screen, make the changes and then assign edit to that screen (you need to be a Jira admin) to do this.

Hope this helps
