How do I add story points field to Bug issue type? Edited

I have a few bug issue types in a project that I need to add story points to, and cannot see this field currently.

Having read other threads I have already done two things:

1. In the Jira Screens setting I have added story points to the field tab

2. In the Issue layout I have added story points as a context field

However no matter what I try I cannot see a field for me to enter the story points when I try and edit the bug. Does anyone have any advice?

If you go to the custom field setting, does the field have a context there for bugs? By default I believe the answer is no.

Optionally check that on the field configuration the field isn't hidden, this is more unlikely to be the case 

Thanks, the issue was two-fold, one that I needed to add a context for bugs, the other that they were also using a custom field called Story Points Estimate, even though Story Points was already available. Thanks for your help.
