How do we stop Agile from randomly editing screens?

Every now and then, our custom configuration versioning software detects changes made by what seems to me to be GreenHopper. These changes break already established order in which fields are appearing on the screen, and introduction of 'Epic Link' field usually makes no sense because the change is usually made on the screen specifically designed for tasks of the 'Epic' type, only (i.e. no other project screens are affected). Moreover, we're actively discouraging making changes without priorly creating a task in which they should be properly described, and we find such automatic out-of-the-blue changes rather interfering.

 

So, how can we stop Agile from messing with already configured screens?

I think scheme config changes only happen when users create projects using templates. Is it possible to find the spot that I can reproduce this?

Well, it actually is as simple as: /secure/RapidStart.jspa → Scrum → Board from an existing project → pick a project; any screen associated with a project via screen schemes get modified. I can even show the traceback of where this actually happens (this was generated with the help of an SQL trigger that prohibits any activity on {{fieldscreenlayoutitem}} table): {noformat} at com.atlassian.jira.ofbiz.DefaultOfBizDelegator.store(DefaultOfBizDelegator.java:377) at com.atlassian.jira.ofbiz.WrappingOfBizDelegator.store(WrappingOfBizDelegator.java:212) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.DefaultFieldScreenStore.updateFieldScreenLayoutItem(DefaultFieldScreenStore.java:130) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.CachingFieldScreenStore.updateFieldScreenLayoutItem(CachingFieldScreenStore.java:162) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.DefaultFieldScreenManager.updateFieldScreenLayoutItem(DefaultFieldScreenManager.java:106) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenLayoutItemImpl.store(FieldScreenLayoutItemImpl.java:80) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenTabImpl.store(FieldScreenTabImpl.java:102) at com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenTabImpl.moveFieldScreenLayoutItemToPosition(FieldScreenTabImpl.java:235) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.addFieldToScreen(CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.java:52) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.addFieldToScreens(CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.java:99) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.addFieldForIssueOperations(CustomFieldScreenServiceImpl.java:92) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.addFieldToScreens(CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.java:111) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.addCustomFieldsToScreens(CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.java:87) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.customfield.CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.ensureFieldsAreCorrectlyConfigured(CustomFieldConfigurationRestorerImpl.java:62) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewHelper.createRapidViewWithProjects(RapidViewHelper.java:375) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewHelper.createRapidViewWithProjects(RapidViewHelper.java:142) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewHelper.createRapidViewForPreset(RapidViewHelper.java:111) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewResource$2.call(RapidViewResource.java:63) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewResource$2.call(RapidViewResource.java:59) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.util.RestCall.response(RestCall.java:42) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.AbstractResource.createResponse(AbstractResource.java:115) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.AbstractResource.response(AbstractResource.java:96) at com.atlassian.greenhopper.web.rapid.view.RapidViewResource.setupView(RapidViewResource.java:58) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(NativeMethodAccessorImpl.java:57) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.java:43) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Method.java:606) at … {noformat}
