Required fields in next-gen projects?

How can I make a field required in a next-gen project?

Also how can I remove standard Jira-created fields from next-gen projects (for example - linked issues)? I don't see any relationship between the next-gen project fields and the issue type screen configurations in Jira settings (I'm using both a next-gen and a classic project in one instanced)

Hello! 2020 arrived and a pretty basic functionality such as mandatory fields is not there yet and its not even in the roadmap. Bump for this.

Why does Atlassian release new versions without key features

The key is what the key means depends on perspective :)

I see 31 folks (so far) have voted up this answer - you all should vote on JSWCLOUD-17631! That JAC ticket seems to be the official story for this. 👀

Next-gen projects shouldn't even be available for general use without this functionality.

Honestly can't believe such a basic feature is missing from a Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Agile Planning Tool 

I Don't see Required fields on the roadmap anymore @Pavan did this get removed?

Would also like to see this. This functionality is crucial!

Any news on this, it is unacceptable to omit required fields in the next gen project type.

Hope we get this feature soon. Need mandatory custom fields in next-gen projects.

I just started trying Next-Gen and this was the first feature that I was looking for - disappointing that its not available

I'd like this too. I'm surprised at how many truly basic functions are absent from next gen projects.

Hey, when we can expect this function to be available?

Please can you bump up the priority on this. It is quite important for putting operational controls in place. Without this, it seems useless to have next gen projects.

This question just came up today in my organization. BUMP.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the interest here.  I unaccepted the previous answer here as it appears that this feature has not yet been implemented in next-gen project, nor is it currently on the roadmap.  

I would invite everyone that comes across this thread and wants to see this feature in next-gen projects to vote on JSWCLOUD-17631.   While this is not the only way we gauge interest, it can be used as a factor in helping to prioritize new features in next-gen. You can also watch that request if you want to see updates on the status of this request.



Voted, commented, and honestly not optimistic that this will be addressed any time soon.

Can someone confirm if this feature is now available? I do not see it on the roadmap that was shared in Q4.

Any update on this? I would like to know if we can configure the screens on the next-gen projects.

Is this thing on? We need this feature...
