2 epic name fields

I added Epic and Story issue types to my Scheme and tested by creating an Epic, I found two epic name fields. Why is it so?

Please have a look to google and search for " greenhopper duplicate fields" (first entry). This problen is already known but the root reason is still unknown. There you will find information how you can fix this problem.

Here's the KB article that Mathias mentioned: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GHKB/How+to+Fix+the+Duplicate+GreenHopper+Custom+Fields+After+Upgrading

Do be careful with the steps and check if any data has been entered for the duplicate fields. Perform a full backup of your data and home directory before perform such modification. If you have any doubts or issue, please raise a support to Atlassian as Engineer can advise and help you to look into the problem as well.
