You can't - a field is either valid for an issue or not.

You can remove fields from screens though, so it might not be visible after creation, or doesn't appear on create, only edits or transitions later.

How can render visible only edits or transitions ?

Place the field on the right screens.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira064/configuring-fields-and-screens-720412098.html is a good guide, and still holds true for Jira 7

I followed this link  :  https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/associating-a-screen-with-an-issue-operation-802592588.html


I added a view issue operation and i  associate with a screen wich contains my custom field but it did not have any effect.

Ok, does the field have any data in it?  Jira hides fields from view if they are empty, to reduce screen clutter.

My fied was empty. I set a default value but it is still hidden.

Setting a default does not change the value in the field.  You need to edit the issue and put something into the field.

It works!! Thank you. Now I would like to hide the field for a user  but apparently this is impossible
