If you are an administrator, look at this:


Then you know, which custom field is the one throwing this error. Please check then, if this field is required in your project.

Tom, thank you for this! It helped solve an issue I was having in Big Picture for the last few weeks.

In my system, this field ID is for "Story Points." In my project, not all stories have points, so the calculations in Big Picture were kicking out warnings using that custom field ID. Once I used your locator URL I identified it as story points, set the default to zero, and viola! no more warnings.

Go and have a look at the list of custom fields.  You can hover a cursor over each "edit" in turn and look for the id in the tooltip link that appears, but it might be easier to read the raw html to find it.  Or you could use REST to ask the create screen what fields are needed.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ What about the system provided fields like reporter, assignee ? How can we find the IDs for those fields ? Please suggest. Thanks!

Check if the field is configured as "Required" in the project. If so, make it optional or provide default value.

how can i find that 10200 field?

@Eddy DickensAnswers provided by Nic and Thomas are the best way to find it :)
