How are you doing this "custom form"?

So the admin is doing it. We want to use confluence for user testing. So the plan is to have the user enter the defect information on a form ( table like) and then we will manually create issues in JiRa.


however, when we select to create the issue in jira it only gives option of summary and description and not all required fields 

That does not tell us anything about what this "custom form" is.  Are you using Forms for Confluence, an issue collector, a plain page and the built-in create-from-selection, some form add-on you've found or written yourselves?

Rather than guess at an answer to that, there's a couple of things you might want to do instead

  1. Ask your admin
  2. Describe what you do to create the issues

Sorry Nic but the admin is not able to figure out either.

essentially when inhighlight the text  and select creat issue, i only see summary and description. Why are the other required fields not showing up?

Right, so there's no "custom form".

When you select text and create issue, that's the standard Jira and Confluence integration and nothing to do with forms.  That integration is relatively simple and expects the Jira project to only require the summary.  It can't (yet) ask Jira for other field requirements.

What are the options we have so we can have that capability

See the last sentence in the last comment...  Then make the fields optional.
