Can I add mandatory fields in Team managed projects?

As stated in the question I want to create a team managed Kanban in order to have the option of creating new Issues directly on the Kanban board (Which isn't possible on the company based one).

In order to do that I also need a lot of custom fields and I would want to make some of the mandatory (e.g. Where should the object be sent and until when is it needed)

Sadly I don't see any option to make fields mandatory. Is there a workaround for this?


Thx for your answers

Hi @Franz Lorenz Salas 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!!!

I don't think so this is available in Team managed project in Jira Cloud.

Few users have already raised feature request to Atlassian on the same, you can vote and watched this feature request. Here is the link for this:





Allowing teams to have required fields on issue creation is something that will be available in next-gen, although it is not something that we will be focusing on in the next 6 months. We want to share this with you to ensure you can plan out your use of projects within Jira Software effectively. In the short term we recommend teams use classic projects when you need to mark certain fields as mandatory on issue creation.

Hi Keshawn Lakin, Is this feature developed as per said 6 months.
