Create issue from planning board with mandatory fields

The feature create new issue from the planning board is great! But we have introduced a mandatory fields (has to do with funding) and that upsets Product owners who are used to being able to create issues from the planning board. 

Is there any way to make it possible to add other fields when creating issues from there? Or any other solution? Or do they need to create issue the normal way (create screen used).

Hi Susanne,

Creating issues from the Plan mode of the board uses the same screens as creating an issue through JIRA, so all the mandatory fields you have in JIRA should be showing up when creating issues through Agile, you just need to make sure the mandatory fields are present in the screen used to Create Issue.

I hope this helps.



Ah, I see now that there is a difference between cloud and server. There you first get the small gui and not the create button. Thanks!
