Field configurations are to make fields mandatory upon creation.

If you want them required while editing you need to have a script or plugin that requires them when presented on the transition screen.

Hi @Vishnu Vardhan Chenna ,

In jira cloud you can mandatory the field in the project but you can't do it using different different screen.  If you want to do it , Please remove that field from create screen then add that field in edit screen then make that field mandatory . It's a good suggestion . 


Let me know , If you are facing any issues

does not work for me in Jira Cloud. When I made the field required, it automatically adds it in create view.
