What is preventing Epic Name from appearing on a Create Task screen

JIRA 5.1

I can see a list of fields in a screen - one is "Epic Name"

I can see that this Project has Issue Types that include "Epic" and "Task"

I can see that both Epic and Task share the same Field configuration

I can see that both Epic and Task share the same Screen configuration

I can see that, apparently, for Create, Edit and View operations, both Epic and Task use the same everything (same screen, same fields)

 

I can't for the life of me work out what is permitting a Create Epic screen to display the Epic Name field, but preventing a Create Task screen (which is the same underlying screen) from displaying it.

 

Where in the config is this, please?

Found it - it was a Custom Field (I didn't think it was, I believed it was a System Field)

Custom Field "Epic Name" that is only associated with Issue Type "Epic", hence only Create Issue "Epic" screens will render it.
