How do I remove a field from edit issue action at a later date? Edited

Using Automation. If I create an action to edit an issue. Then I specify several fields I want updated, but then later decide I don't want one of these fields on the edit issue action, how do I remove just this one field from the action?

For Date fields all I see are options under the ellipsis to set value or copy from.

If I leave the field empty, automation will empty the field. I need it off the component. Right now the only work around would be delete the Edit Issue component and start over again, reentering any smart values.

Hi @Josh Schoenick

I believe this is controlled by the "choose fields to set" dropdown.  If you expand it you can select additional fields to fill in or you can uncheck fields that have been added to remove them from being set.

I hope this helps!


So simple, yet hidden. You're right. Yet it never even occurred to me once I had the field added to the form.

Perhaps it would make a good feature request to add a "remove" link or X next to the field on the form too?
