Issue's fields disappear when their values are empty/null


I met a new problem : when I create an issue, fill each field and validate, the resulting issue screen only contains fields whose values have been specified. Fields whose values are empty/null on the creation screen disappear... I did not understand why. Is there anything to do, in order to keep all original fields of create issue screen ? perhaps in the field configuration scheme ...?

Thank you very much,

This is expected behavior. The View screen in JIRA only displays fields with values. You can still see and update the fields on your Edit screen.

If you want all fields to display after creation, you will need to set a default value for each field. Keep in mind that setting a default value for a field will negate any 'required' attribute you have set, as the field will always contain a value.
