A tab cannot be made required or not required.

You can only hide/show a tab.

You will have to make all the fields in the tab required or not one by one.

Hi Peter

Still I am not able to sort out. could you provide a script on behaviours

If I select "Business services"(value)

in "Business Driver" (Elements connect field) 

then other fields "ID Impact, Product Impact, PD Houses" to non mandatory.

Assuming the fields is not flagged as required (all fields must be set to optional) in the project's field configuration a script like this should work:

def busDriverFld = getFieldByName('Business Driver')
def tabFieldNames = ['ID Impact', 'Product Impact', 'PD Houses']

def requiredBySelection = busDriverFld.value != 'Business services'

tabFieldNames .each{fieldName->

 Be sure to confirm the spelling of all field names and values (including correct case).

Tabs do not have an optional/mandatory setting, but they look like they do when they contain a mandatory field.

Behaviours can not make a field optional if it is set mandatory in Jira - the mandatory setting is checked on the server-side as the issue is created, and Behaviours can't get to that.

So, to make a tab "optional", you have to make all the fields within it optional in the field configuration.

You can use Behaviours to completely hide a tab, but you'll need to have all the fields on it optional.

Thanks Nic

Again, you cannot make a field non-mandatory with Behaviours.  You have to make the field optional in the field configuration.
