How to mark fields as mandatory without summary section?

Hello, please kindly tell me how to mark the fields as mandatory (with red star)? The solution provided by community already here is not working as I don't have "summary" section in my JIRA. 

I would like to manage that for each issue type differently.

Thank you in advance!

Also I have a problem that I am not able to remove 2 fields, can you help me please? 

Screens attached.

Hi @Zuzanna Kraszkiewicz-Krzemińska  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can make fields mandatory by changing the field configuration for the project.

After going to Project settings I don't have "issues" I have "issue types" and there no "field configuration" options.Screenshot 2022-05-18 142535.png

I can create a field but not update its configuration :(
