Remove the default fields on view screen

I would like to remove these below fields on my view screen:

Affect versions
Fix versions

Project type: Software
Issue Type: Document

I have a different associated to the create, view and edit screen for this particular project and for this issue type, but when I create a issue I see the fields that I have configured which is cool, but when I look at the view screen I see the fields that are not even part of my view screen.

Can you please help me understand how can I remove the above fields that I mentioned.Screen Shot 2017-05-09 at 3.04.41 PM.png

You can "hide" them in the field configuration for the project. This can have strange (usually minor) consequences, so keep it in mind in case people ask about related functionality later.

So do I have to create a new field configuration for this particular project?

Yes, you need a new field configuration, unless you want to hide the fields everywhere the existing configuration is used.

It looks like in your case you only want to hide them from a particular issue type, probably in every project. Field configuration schemes can be tailored by issue type so simply hide them from that issue type. 

How can I hide n number of fields by bulk? Is it doable?

I have a doubt here - can I have different field configuration for different project for a different issue type?

Like I want a different field configuration set up for an issue type "task" in one of my projects, but I dont want it to affect another projects of mine which has issue type task.
