Hey @Judit Arvai ,
Yeah best thing would be to make the new field, add the values you need to it. Then you could reconfigure your reports to look at the new field and bulk edit the current issues to change the field values to the appropriate ones. To make the field required, you would go into the Field Configuration Scheme, find the field and then set it to required.
That's the best path in my opinion. Hopefully that helped!
