Update fields on create issue screen Jira Software Development project

The create issue screen for my Software Project has a very limited set of fields to choose from. I can see a screen scheme that looks like it should be associated with this project, and that scheme has the right fields in it, but there doesn't appear to be a way for me to associate that screen scheme to this project. The instructions say to go to projects > find project, click on it > project settings > screens, but there is no screens option in this project. I can associate screen schemes no problem to my Jira Service Desk Project, but not my Software Project.

I've tried adding more fields to the issue itself in the project settings, but the fields listed there do not align with the fields in the screen scheme. Specifically, I would like the ability to link an epic right on the issue create screen, but this doesn't appear as a choice until after the issue has been created.

TL;DR - Can you associate a screen scheme to a Team Managed Software Project?

Thank you!!!

Hi @Maegan Burleigh - No you cannot associate screen schemes with a team-managed project.  Team-managed projects are designed to work in isolation from other projects.
