We are testing JIRA Service Desk Cloud for our service desk, we are currently using ServiceNow and want to migrate some process that are automated and have custom fields/forms.

JIRA requires a summary as it is used everywhere to give users a brief idea of what the issue is about.
Your screenshot says things to me that make me want to suggest that instead of having a "survey id", you should ask the user for the survey id as the summary of the issue (for that request type only). Saves you a field and solves the summary problem.
For this particular use case you are correct, but I'm not sure if it's a good workaround for all use cases we have specially because the Summary field label can't be changed to say "Survey ID" or whatever field I need (If it's a text field).
Thanks for the suggestion!
It's a bit of a cheat as I've done something similar in the past - on Server, you have the flexibility to install something that will take the summary and copy it over into the "survey id" and then set the summary to something a bit more informative (like "Survey id is: xxxxx"). You still need the summary populated, but as it echoes the custom field, it looks a lot better.
