When I convert a sub-task to an issue, the "convert sub task" wizard starts.
In the first step I choose the issue type (story in my case), the second step is skipped and the third step "Update fields" already shows me some fields (the fields displayed vary depending on the issue type).
How do I add another custom field to this screen?
If you make the field mandatory on the taget issue type and the field is absent on the sub-task, you will be asked for it in the "update fields" screen. If the field is not mandatory, JIRA assumes that you just want to move only the existing fields.
"Update fields" screen only shows the fields that needs changes due to one reason or the other.
Yes, you are right, mandatory fields are allways displayed there if they were absent on the other issue type they become displayed. Thanks for this additional information. But making the field mandatory is not an option for me, bacause it must be possible to leave it empty. But nevertheless, the answer is correct.
