I want to create a new People field to capture a user field in a form (different to the submitter, assigned or watcher), but when I create this field it doesn't appear as an option in the menu on the right hand side.
Custom fields of other types appear fine - it's specifically only the People type and doesn't work regardless of single or multiple selection.
This is a Business Project so doesn't have the screens option under the project settings, and seems specific to the People field type only.
Steps to reproduce
Oh, I see you are using the new Forms feature that was just introduced. To be clear when you add a field to an issue type it is not automatically available to any form that you might be building. In fact I'm not even sure if the People field type can be leveraged here. However, I'm not absolutely sure as I don't use TMP very much and I have used forms within TMP for sure. Here is some documentation you might wish to read please take note especially to section on Jira custom fields that are supported in forms. Please note that this document seems centered more around CMP. I have not yet found the associated TMP documentation.
I will try to find out more information on this and get back to you if I am successful.
Ok well thanks to @Mikael Sandberg for straightening me out. I had forgotten that JWM projects add a separate Forms feature vs. Proforma Forms whis actually is only currently in JSM. ugh...so confusing.
In any event Mikael indicated that he could replicate the same thing as you have seen @Niels Kee . So this is either a limitation of the forms feature or a bug. Based on the documentation link that I sent, which I believe is accurate, I expect this is a limitation. I might suggest that you reach out to Atlassian support for an official answer.
