Assign Custom Field to a Single Issue Edited

I am using Jira Software project as a kind of 'questionnaire'. The questions are grouped into  Epics, and the individual questions are Tasks. Most questions require a Yes/No response and I have set-up a custom field (checkbox) for that. There are a few questions that require unique custom fields, for example a checkbox with 10 unique options, or a question with a multi-select dropdown.

I want to assign ex. TASK-123 a custom field so that the end user can select all that apply, and then move that Task to done. I don't want this custom field to appear in all Issues in my project, so I think creating a new screen for Issue Type doesn't work, because all of the questions are set-up as tasks. 

I don't want to use forms or the task management template - it's important to stick with a Jira Software project.

Would be great to know if this is even possible. Thanks for any ideas.

Hi Helen - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I am afraid that you would have to setup a separate Issue Type for those issues. Then you can control which fields appear on a screen by Issue Type. But there is no field level security within Jira that would allow you to do it otherwise. 

Thanks so much John! I attempted and googled this for hours, great to get a definitive answer. Cheers
