Thank you it works!

Last question, is it possible to make it a required field?

Hi - I am no expert at this and pretty new myself, but when I had to make a custom field a required field I created a new Field Configuration.

However, this only applied to custom fields for 1 Project

I understand that I can configure the field to be mandatory editing "Default field configuration", but even if the field is only associated to the "close issue" screen when I create a new issue in the "created issue" screen I do not see my custom field but when I click on create it always fails because it says to me that my custom field is required.

Hi Sergio

As I said, I created a new Field Configuration to make the fields mandatory and did not just edit the default configuration.

This worked for me because the fields were only required for one project so I was able to associate that project with the new Field Configuration.

However, as yours is for the closed issue screen, I am not sure how this would be done as I assume that you would need the custom field for all projects, and then you would be back to the same problem that you have with editing the default configuration.
