By default, a project is created with a single screen (for all issuetypes) for all three actions :

  • Create
  • Edit
  • View

If you're a project admin
Project > Settings > Screens > 

Best practices is to keep Create screens quite sparse (asking for too much data may overwhelm the inputter)

Edit screens are much more verbose

View screens could go one of two ways ... 

  1. sometimes they hide data (used by automated processes or for transitions).  They hide the data by not including a field on the view screen definition.
  2. I've also seen them show uneditable data (from calculated fields etc).  If the field is present on the view screen but not present on the edit screen - it's 'uneditable'.

Hi @anjali s
The create screen defines which fields will be displayed if you create an issue. The edit screen is displayed when you click on edit in the issue. 
Best regards,
