Different fields for different projects

I added two fields, but only need it for one of the projects.

How do I modify the Issues form to have different fields based on the project?

(This is only my second day using JIRA.)

Thank you

Screens are not the best place to start because they are one of the difficult to understand :)

Basically, there are 3 levels for screens - For a project, for an issuetype, for an issue operation!

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA050/Defining+a+Screen where it is best explained.

You do have three different ways to do this - where you can, you should try to use the same method as much as possible - keep the complexity in one place!

Field configurations - will let you show/hide the field on a project by project basis

Field contexts - much the same, except more global - this affects simple searching as well, and lets you have different options for the same fields in differen projects

Screens - probably the most complex way to do it, but also the most flexible
