You can't make a field mandatory just for one screen. If the field is made mandatory using field configuration, it will be mandatory right from 'Create', even if the field is not present on 'Create' screen.

An alternative would be to allow editing of that field only via workflow transitions and in that case you can make the field mandatory using workflow validators. Javascript hacks is the other option.

Hi jobin,

Thanks for your updates, I make the two fields mandatory and i could not include those fields in create screen. Then i tried to create the issue it shows those field are required but in the create screen those fields are not available.

Yes, that is what I was trying to say. That is just how JIRA works.

If you want to require them after creation you need to require them on a transition with a plugin like jira-utilities. The resolution field is ALWAYS required when put on a screen regardless of the field configuration. That is why it should only be put on the transtion screen when you want to set it.

As @Nic suggested, add the global transition something like "Update Data" and add those fields to this transition and remove the fields from edit screen so you can make fields requires using validator
