How do you make Required/mandatory fields only for 1 project?

Using Jira cloud, but how do you create required fields that only affect 1 project and not all of the projects in our group?

In next-gen project, the fields created are specific to that project.

So, I assume you want to make the fields as mandatory/required for a Classic project.

You can create a new field configuration and use it in your project so that it'll not affect other projects. You mark the fields as required in it.

Hi @Dylan_E_Adams 

Are you using a classic project or a Next gen project?

I typically prefer to make the field required associated with a specific transition, e.g. the Create. This is done by editing the workflow and adding a Validator to the transition(s) where you wish the have the field updated.

  1. project settings > workflow , edit the workflow associated with the Issuetype(s) desired.
  2. click on the transition and the on Validators.
  3. add the “field required” Validator and choose the field.
  4. add an error message if desired.
  5. add a screen that has the field you wish to be updated. If you don’t have a screen already defined you will need to add on.
  6. publish the workflow.
