How do I avoid validation errors when linking to the Create Issue form?

I'm trying to create a custom link (from a Confluence page) to the JIRA Create Issue form with the values of several fields selected.

The link looks like this (I left off the domain for privacy reasons):

Is there a way to avoid those validation messages? I can live with the one for Assignee by hard coding the user ID of the person, but I'd prefer for it to assign it to the automatic assignee without complaint. However, I would really like to avoid the validation errors for the summary and description.

I should also note that I was following the instructions on this page from the JIRA docs:

Hi Rafe

You can go to Administration > Field Configuration > Default Field Configuration :

In here, you can select the Field that you want it to be Optional or Required

Thanks & Regards
