Set default Priority to Empty


I would like to configure JIRA in such order that Priority is set to Empty on Create Issue transition, i.e. by default priority is shown is empty in Create issue screen and user must select any type of priority in order to create issue.

Could you please help me how to configure it?

Thank you.

Regards, Georgiy.
