Hi Sohel,

it is not that simple, but here are the steps, you have to do for that:

  • create a new Field Configuration by copying your default field configuration, name it e.g. "my new Field Configuration"
  • Configure that Field Configuration, make your new custom field required
  • Create a new Field Configuration Scheme by copying your default field configuration scheme, name it "my new Field Configuration Scheme" or so
  • Configure that new Field Configuration Scheme, associate your custom issue type with the new Field Configuration
  • Associate the new field configuration scheme to your project.
  • Don't forget to add the new custom field to your screens

After that, every issue of the custom issue type has the new field. If you edit an issue with that field and the field is not yet set, you are forced to set the custom field.

Thx Thomas,

However, I expected some java as answer.

I am making a plugin with new issue and field type.
