I have a Custom Field that was part of the main default screen and I have since removed it however when we create an issue it is still saying the field is required.
I've gone through all the places I could think of to find where it might be but it is not listed for this screen anywhere.
Where in the database could I look and possiblly update it to properly remove the field?
You need to check the field configuration you are using with your field configuration scheme:
Although the screen dictates whether or not the field is there, the field configuration can dictate whether or not it is hidden, required, ect. :)
There are a lot of things you have to keep in mind with field settings - it can certainly get confusing. Glad I was able to help, and thanks for accepting my answer! :)
BTW - there is a feature request to make fields only required for certain parts of a workflow - you can view it and comment/vote for it here:
