Enter a name (e.g. SAP Transport Panel Issue Type Screen Scheme) and a description (optional)

Select any default screen scheme to use for unmapped issue types. → Click on Add

Your are automatically navigated to the configure dialog of the created issue type screen scheme.

Otherwise you have to search for the created Issue type screen scheme to assign the scheme to issue types→ Click on Configure

In the dialog that follows, the issue type and screen scheme are assigned to one another via Click on Associate an issue type with a screen scheme.

This assignment must be made individually for each issue type.
