  5. Click Add.

Editing an association

  1. Select the Jira icon (, or ) > Settings > Issues.

  2. Click Screen schemes and then Configure next to the relevant screen scheme.
  3. Click Edit next to the relevant issue operation and update the selected screen.Select the desired screen and click Update.

Deleting an association

  1. Select the Jira icon (, or ) > Settings > Issues.

  2. Click Screen schemes and then Configure next to the relevant screen scheme.
  3. Click Delete next to the relevant association. This issue operation will now use the default option. 

Activating a screen scheme

To activate a screen scheme: 

  1. Configure an issue type screen scheme to use the screen scheme.
