Adding the Program and Program Increment Custom Fields to Screens in Jira Cloud

Easy Agile Programs for Jira can expose what Program and Program Increment an issue is scheduled in on the issue view in Jira.

In order to expose this information in the issue view, the Program and Program Increment custom fields will need to be placed on the edit issue screen for any Project included in a Program.
