Different screens in field configurations


Is there a way for me to get a custom field to show up in a screen for on field configuration but not in another?

For a certain issue type I would like the custom field to show up in Create Screen but not for any other isue types.

Yes, you can associate different screen schemes to different issue types. So you define a different create screen for the issue type, create a new screen scheme with this create screen and associate this screen scheme with the issue type.


Thanks!! Never thought of creating a different create screen.

Hi David, yes it is possible. For that you have to configure the Screen Scheme and Field Scheme of the project. Here you have some documentation:



Hope this helps.
