I am following the article here to create a very basic template for my internal team who are not experienced with JIRA.
When I create a JIRA using HTML all possible fields (custom and default) appear on the create screen. Is there a way to hide the fields that I don't want my team to populate? I
that cannot be done from within the HTML link - you would have to remove the fields from the screen.
This, indeed, would imply that they are not visible on the screen - no matter if you use the HTML link or choose the path through "create" button.
Thanks for your response Peter! You see all these empty fields, they are neither required nor have any default value. I want to hide these fields so that when my team clicks on the HTML link to create an issue, all they see are the required fields and the fields I want them to fill..
I am looking for something like customfield_10400=null(or hidden etc), some parameter that can hide the field from the display.
And to your original question- I will populate some fields with default values but won't hide them. I only want to hide the fields that are of no use to my project and will confuse my team members as they will try to populate them.
I guess I know what you mean. There is an edit screen option that is only accessible to JIRA administrator in my organization. I will check with the admin to see if they can selectively hide fields for just my project as we have 500 projects using the same fields.
Thank you for your support. I will accept the answer from Daniel and you can close the case.
