I mean project, in the sense that this issue belongs to a certain project.

Anyway, yes, screen when creating an issue. I have already put Default Screen.


Thanks Jobin,


Hi Jobim,


This is the situation:

  • our project is in the Default Issue Type Scheme
  • our custom field in Default Screen (general information)
  • issue type - Default Screen (general information)

But I still cannot see our custom field in the form create new issue and also I do not see it in the views -> XML.


What could be the problem?



Ok. Porblem resolved.

I associated to the screen schema (create operation) the default screen (the same of my custom field).

Now I see my CF in create issue.


Thanks a lot!!! You were correct.
