User-Defined Field Used with Multiple Projects Edited

I have a user-defined field that I use with multiple projects and it is currently set to "Required".

For a new project, I want to use this field but it not be required.

I started down the path of creating a custom field configuration then got turned around and confused by:

  • Issue Type Scheme
  • Screen Schemes
  • Screens
  • Custom Fields
  • Field Configurations
  • Field Configuration Schemes

I know Jira has a steep learning curve but I feel dumber by the minute.

Where to start?

Thanks in advance for the guidance.
