How do I use custom field with all screen?



I want to use custom field with all screen and issue type. (JIRA-AGILE)


As my working order :
  1. make customfield
    1. issue type(s) : Global (all issues)
      1. applicable issue types : any issue type
      2. applicable context : Global context
    2. Associate field Expense to screens : default screen

when i make project, my custom field not visible (not automatically add screen)



I want to put on the screen automatically like "sprint" field.
Or to put every project created manually. (this way right?)

Please teach me the way .

The "default Screen" is what will be used by default for a new project. When you add "Expense" to this screen, it means that all projects that are newly created will have "Expense" on the screen. What it looks like to me, is that you already have a large number of projects that are using their own screens already. 

To place this field on all screens, you will need to select the screens that would you want the field to go on after you create the custom field. Instead of associating to "default", associate to all of the project screens you want it to be on.


Placing it on default will only help if all the projects are using the default screen.
