I read the tutorial from this link: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/specifying-field-behavior-861253403.html but I still can't configure my need in the system. I need to create a mandatory field only for the technician, but not mandatory for the requesting person. For example, a fault code where the requester does not know what it will be, but which the technician will have to compulsorily fill in to be able to close the request. Does anyone know if this is possible to configure? Because when I left a mandatory field, when the requester opened the request through the help center, it was also mandatory there, and when I tried to hide the field, it got even worse, because then it was impossible to open the request due to Jira giving a warning that it has a hidden mandatory field and because of this it is not possible to open the request.
Can someone help me with this please?
Thanks for listening.
Yes, it is possible. Here is what you can do -
1) Implement the required field in your WF.
2) First, create a screen that contains the required field(s).
3) Customize your WF and implement the following at the transition into the CLOSED status
4) publish the WF.
After it is setup, when an agent moves the issue to CLOSED, it will pop-up the custom screen and require value for those fields. If the agent failed to provide the values, then he/she will not be able to close out the issue.
The field(s) are not set to "required" in the field configuration scheme in your project, but it is set for required via WF tranistion.
Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for the help.
Sorry for my ignorance, I'm only 3 weeks working on the jira, but I couldn't do the first stage LOL.
I already have the required fields created, and as I understand it, I went to the workflow, opened the diagram and clicked Post Functions > Add post function > Update issue custom field > Add > Select the field > Type the value for the field > Add and then, “Publish draft” to save the changes on the workflow, according to the attached print, is this really where I should go?
You need to add a validator and not a post function. You want your agent to select the appropriate Component value right when they close out the issue?
Also, did you create the custom screen with the field(s) and associated your transition with the screen?
I finally got it.
Thank you very much for your help, in fact all I needed was this validator, with it I managed to create the rule and now it only ends if I fill in the fields I want. I don't understand why create a custom screen, but what matters is that it's working. Thank you again.
