Jira Agile -> Error: "Business Value: Business Value is needed" while creating a new epic or story

Hey guys,

I am not able to create a story or an epic at Greenhopper. The following error appears:

"Business Value: Business Value is needed"

JIRA-Version is 6.3.1.

Do you know what I have to do here?

It seems that a custom field named Business Value is required and obviously not on your create screen.

So you have two options:

1. Add this custom field to your create screen.

2. Set this field not required in the field configuration used in this project.

THX for your help. Nr.2 worked for me.
