View issue screen fields


I'm looking for a way to hide a default field (components/ affects versions) so it will not appear in the view screen. The view screen displays all the default fields by default, changes to the screen configuration only affect the custom fields display. From the documentation:

"The 'View Issue' operation only allows you to control the layout of custom fields in the middle of the 'View Issue' page. The 'View Issue' page ignores all the non-custom fields on the Screen."

I know I can hide the field completely but I want this field to appear in one project and not in another. If I hide it, it will not appear in any project. I realize I can create my own custom field to replace the default one and use it in the project I need, but this seems an awkward workaround.

Is there a better way to achieve this?

If I have understood this correctly, you have a project (or set of projects) that don't want to use components and/or versions?

That's not a problem - leave the screens alone, and move on to field configurations - copy the current one to one called something like "hidden versions" and hide versions in that, then apply it to the projects that don't need the fields. Even though they can use the same screens, it will hide versions.

Your'e right. I thought I tried it and it didn't work but now I tried again and this solves my problem.

Thanks !

you can create different field configurations for different projects and hide field you want in some of them
