In Jira you can create multiple custom fields of various types where you want to store crucial information related to you project. To avoid people from skipping those fields you can use a field permission scheme in Jira, its main job is to make a field required or hidden in the project.
Now making a field required makes sense but why would you hide a field using field permission scheme? Why can't we just not add the field?
