How to hide a field on issue creation, but display it on issue editing

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring Fields and Screens


Everything is in the title.

I'd like a certain field to be hidden during issue creation phase, but available on issue editing.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Victor,

You must create two screens:

  • A "Create" screen without the field
  • An "Edit" screen which has the field

Then, set up your screen scheme so that your "Create" screen is used for the Create Issue operation and your "Edit" screen is used for the Edit Issue operation.

This way, the field won't show when creating an issue, but will show when you click "Edit" to edit an existing issue.

I hope this helps.


Thanks !
