Has anyone ever experienced a situation where the Epic Link and Sprint fields magically appearing at the bottom of almost all the active JIRA issue screens? Even after removing them they show back up after about a week.
We're assuming this is a system problem and not something being created by human intervention because these two fields are even being added to the default screen Home tab when they already exist on another tab we have labeled Agile. And as everyone who has tried knows, it is impossible to add a field to a screen's tab until it has been removed from any other tab it may be on in that screen. This is what leads us to believe there may be some corruption in the database that's causing this "re-add" we're experiencing.
Please post any suggestions or similar experiences you may have seen because at this point we're stumped.
We're going to escalate this up. We have these fields showing up on non-JIRA Agile project screens, technical task screens (where they don't make sense), and all of our system. I keep deleting them and they keep being recreated. Very poor behaviour on the part of the JIRA Agile plugin, which seems to where the offending code resides.
We are experiencing this problem, too. After searching a bit I stumbled upon this question.
This bug has been fixed in JIRA 7.1.0 Server. The best way to solve our problem seems to do an upgrade.
Please refer to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSW-12055 for details
For those who are not aware yet: this feature was added by them in some recent version (6?). The fields are added to every screen automatically, for example sprint fields are also added to screens that are used only for Epics. Or to screens that are never used in scrum workflows.
We have more that 100 screens, so on advice of them, we cleaned them up all. It was fine, ... until... we restarted Jira. At restart these fields are again added to every screen.
I have the same issue. I would love a way to distinguish between projects using Agile and projects that do not. We use JIRA (6.3.x) for both software development and operational projects (the latter includes marketing data updates, server and database configuration requests, etc). I have spent time with each group designing their screens and it's frustrating when these fields keep re-appearing. I hope JIRA 7x allows you to mark projects as "Agile" or "Non-Agile" so that you can keep those fields from appearing where not wanted.
