Is there an easier way to find every Screen associated with a particular issue type?

I'd like to quickly find every screen that is used when creating/editing/viewing a specific issue type.  Knowing I have a large JIRA instance with hundreds of screens and many issue types, how would one do this quickly?


Currently, I can laboriously find these screens by:

  1.  Looking at each 'Issue Type Screen Scheme'
  2.  Finding the specific issue type in that scheme
  3.  Opening the Screen Scheme for the issue type
  4.  Opening the Screen in that Screen Scheme


Is there a more efficient way?  Thank You!

You can go to Project Administration and choose there Screen tab in the vertical menu. Then you will be able to see all issuetypes for the project and connected screen schemes to the issue types. You can edit the screen shemes right from there.

Thanks for the reply, Alexey.   Unfortunately, we have many,many Jira projects and this would require I open each and every project, which would not save any time.   

I wonder if there are entries in the Jira Database tables that show screen / issue type associations?

It would be something like this

SELECT c.pname issutypename, issuetype issuetypeid, screenname, screenid, issuetypescreenname, screenscheme
FROM issuetypescreenschemeentity a, issuetypescreenscheme b, issuetype c,
fieldscreenscheme d, fieldscreenschemeitem e, fieldscreen f
where a.scheme =
and a.issuetype =
and a.fieldscreenscheme =
and e.fieldscreenscheme =
and e.fieldscreen =
order by pname;

Thank You!  I will give it a try
