i'm looking into this new JIRA agility board and can't find anywhere I can make some of the fields mandatory
Is there a specific way I need to do this on next gen projects?
Hi @Ravi Mistry,
Unfortunately this is not possible yet. As many thing currently this is on Atlassian Roadmap...
"Required fields, default values and more custom field types and options coming soon."
When this could be live? No idea. That is not an official information yet.
Anybody know the status for required fields?
@Pavel V, yes we are very aware of the roadmap page but what was once updated with "Shipped" items almost weekly or biweekly, now has zero updates for exactly 3 months. Has JIRA Next-Gen reduced in priority for Atlassian as a whole?
@Tom Leser apologies regarding the roadmap. This has slipped through the gaps for a while - I'm currently compiling all the updates and I will publish a new roadmap next week.
With regards to required fields, a change in priorities means this will be removed from shipping soon and falls back into the backlog of changes for next-gen projects.
Again apologies for the inconvenience this will cause.
Hi @Ravi Mistry - it's not possible to have a mandatory field on issue creation in next-gen projects; however it is possible to create a workflow rule to check a field has been populated on transition to another status "Check an issue's field" https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/add-or-remove-workflow-rules-in-next-gen-projects-1005805110.html#:~:text=Rules%20help%20you%20streamline%20your,workflows%20in%20next%2Dgen%20projects.
For mandatory fields on issue creation, you can add your vote to the feature suggestion here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17631 This will happen, although not likely in the next 12 months.
Apologies for the inconvenience!
I suffered this issue for a while. With the recent automation feature, I had the following workaround solution as the site admin.
Trigger: when a new task is created and required custom field is not filled.
Action: Send the initiator an email cc to me telling the required field is blank.
