How to remove sprint field from Epic

We don´t want the sprint field to be present in epics as they don´t go into a specific sprint, the connected features or stories goes into the sprint. Now we have removed the sprint field from create edit and view screen. So we can´t add it when we create new or edit epics.

However - if we move a feature issue i.e. convert a feature to an epic and the feature has  a sprint id - it will be part of the epic and is visible in the epics issue view. We don´t want this behavior!

My idea was then to hide it in field configuration - but unfortunately it is not possible to hide sprint id in field config...

Then I tried to set a post function which purges sprint field on creation of epic - to see if that solved the move unwanted behavior - but still no success...

 Does anyone have a workaround for this?

The workaround would be to remove the sprint field value before moving it to an epic.  I know this probably isn't what you are wanting to hear, but it's really the easiest way to get around this.

Thank you Luther - thas was my suggestions to the users until we find a better automatic way to purge the field if the receiving issue type does not have the sprint field included in the screens
