How To Make Component Field Mandatory In Just One Project


I am having difficulty following the back-end configuration for making a component field mandatory in just a single project. Making the component field mandatory in all projects is easy (Admin > Issues > Fields > Field Configurations > Component > Required).

I see , but despite my efforts, the component field is becoming mandatory for all projects.

Can anyone give me a step-by-step guide to making the component field mandatory in just one project without making it mandatory in all projects?

Thanks very much!

hello Rowan,

you just create a new Field Configuration and make Component/s field required. Now create a new Field Configuration Scheme, add the Field Configuration to it and associate this Scheme to your project that only require Component/s field mandatory.

This worked, thanks, @Bharadwaj Jannu! I wish Atlassian's documentation doesn't make Field Configuration and Field Configuration Scheme sound so confusing. 

How do you associate a new Field Configuration Scheme with a project? I can't figure out how to do it.

Disclaimer: these steps apply to my instance of Jira Server.

To associate the Field Config Scheme with your Project:

  • First, follow the steps outlined above in the answer from Bharadwaj Jannu.
  • Create a new Field Configuration and add it to a new Field Configuration Scheme.
  • Then, go to the Project.
  • Click on the Project Settings (gear icon), lower left.
  • On the "Project settings" screen, in the section titled "Fields", click on the link to the Scheme.
  • You'll go to a page that is titled "Fields" and displays the current Field Configuration Scheme for your project.  On that page, click on the "Actions (gear icon)" drop-down in the upper-right.
  • In the resulting drop-down menu, select "Use a different scheme"
  • You'll go to a page titled "Field Layout Configuration Association" that "allows you to associate a field configuration scheme with the project <your project name>"
  • In the drop-down menu titled "Scheme" pick the scheme that you created earlier.

you have to create sepatare field configuration for each issue type then create field configuration scheme and append to project

it is explained on this document

I can't seem to append it to the project because I don't have the Actions menu where I can select to use a different scheme.

I am on Jira Cloud and worked a treat,

  1. Settings Cog (top right corner next to profile photo)
  2. Select Issue
  3. Field Configurations
  4. Copy existing and rename in a way that makes sense
  5. Open the new copy of the existing field config
  6. Search Component
  7. Click Required
  8. Click Field Config Schemes
  9. Copy existing and rename in a way that makes sense
  10. Click Configure and select the right Field Config created in step 5
  11. Click Projects and find the Project needing Component to be mandatory
  12. Click Project Settings in left hand menu bar
  13. Click Fields
  14. Click the Actions cog on the right hand side above the fields
  15. Click Use a different scheme
  16. Select the newly created scheme

All done ✅
