Hi @Dylan_E_Adams

Do you mean how do you reset the Default Field Configuration's settings?

There is a "Restore Defaults" option in the field configuration which should restore operation values - hide/show, required/optional, renderers, etc. To access this as a Jira Admin:

  1. Go to Jira Settings > Issues
  2. Locate Field Configurations down the left-hand side and click it
  3. Select the Default Field Configuration
  4. Press "Restore Defaults" which is a bold hyperlink just above the search box

^ This should do the trick. If not, let us know and we can advise further :)

Hi @Dylan_E_Adams 

So you are trying to get back the default field configuration which was present earlier.

So before following up on @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ answer please ensure that whether the existing configuration is required or not? If required do the necessary, if not the existing projects might break down. Ensure to take a copy of the existing configuration.

@Ganesh Babu I did this in error is there a way to revert back to what it was before clicking "Restore Defaults"?
