Allow certain fields in an issue to be designated as uncommon for display purposes
There are certain fields, regular or custom, that while needed as part of an issue are not needed regularly, or are used infrequently.
It would be nice to be able to mark such fields as uncommon and allow those fields to be not displayed by default. This would help in keeping the UI clean and not cluttered. Much like the existing 'Change properties'. Except that these issues would typically be found in the lower part of the UI rather than just the top.
This sounds similar to #2618. Although a larger version of this would be to use the example of the workflow mechanism to select which fields would be in the uncommon area by issue type and role.

this is a good idea. This setting would be helpful.
Maybe this settings could be set by workflow or in the projectconfiguration.
This is a problem which getting seriously on projects with many different custom fields, which must be writeable (which means i can't just hide them #8050) but they shouldn't be displayed all the time. In addition with #12250, this could be really helpful to get a cleaner interface!
