How to get rid of search bar in custom field?

I have been building custom fields for a service desk and have a number of questions with yes/no answers - it is superfluous to have a search bar when there are only two options, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it. When I change the search option to "none" in field configuration, it remains. I'd also like to get rid of the "none" when the field is an optional one, but I know that's a common issue that is at least somewhat addressed elsewhere.

Hi Kira,

JIRA does not have boolean type of field (Yes/No, ON/OFF) out of the box. You don't like the select fields so the only other option is to use multi-checkbox with a single option. Here is a quick preview. Yes/No in this case is the name of the field and Yes is the option. With a little tweaking it will be what you need.

Let me know if this works for you.

Thank you Peter! It is strange that there is no Boolean field, but I appreciate this work-around suggestion.
