Remove Original Estimate Field from All Issue Types Edited


I'm trying to disable Time Tracking and Original Estimate from all issue types in Jira Service Desk. I managed to hide the Time Tracking field successfully, but I cannot find Original Estimate anywhere in Jira.

I've checked:

  • Custom Fields
  • Field Configurations
  • Field Configuration Schemes > My JSD scheme
  • All relevant screens in JSD

I don't see any option to remove it. I don't even see a field with original in it anywhere. I've attempted searching for it in Field Configurations. Does anyone have a suggestion?

In Jira Cloud, I found that disabling time tracking removed the field from all of the screens (under Issue Features -> Time Tracking). 


I am seeing this 


Note, I am not familiar with Jira Service Desk, just Jira Cloud. So I could be wrong here.

I think this is a default field include with Jira so you cannot remove the field from the system.

If all you want to do is not display it take a look at the Screens. You could just remove the fields there. Field still exists behind the scenes, but you won't see it.

Also, in Jira, I think you can turn time tracking on or off, but this would apply to all projects within your Jira instance.
