How do I disable a custom field on JIRA Cloud?

Hi there,


We have a custom field on our project that we're not gonna use anymore, but we want to keep its data on the past issue. So basically what we want to do is remove from the screen but we don't want it to desappear from the previous issue.

So, there is a way to do this without having to create a new screen like "Create Isse Screen"?

By far the simplest option is to remove it from the create/edit screens.  No messing around with flags or other settings.  You just don't get to edit it any more

Hello, the only way is to create a view screen with the old custom filed and an edit/view screen without.
