How do you remove 'NONE' from a select list or radio button custom field?

I am using Jira version 7.2.6 - i have tried making the fields 'required' on the customer field configuration but that doesnt work.

You have to specify a default value for that field. You can do this under Customfields -> Configure -> Edit Default Value

hi i have tried that but the 'none' option is still present. 

It's default and mandatory - have you done both?  (Both are at an issue level too, not project)

I have just tried that too and its still there. When you say issue level do you mean the custom field is assigned to an issue type?

Yes, but also the configuration - you can give an issue type a "field configuration" that differes from other issue types in the same project (and, of course, across different projects). 

When I mess up fields, 75% of the time it's because I have associated the wrong field configuration, and 24% of the time, I've got the context wrong.

I have just checked and i have already assigned a field configuration for that issue type. I have also assigned the custom field to the same issue type and i have set a default value & made the field mandatory.......AND its still there :(

The default is assigned at the custom field definition level in the context, if you have different ones by project or issue type.

You must be missing something in the configuration.

I've just created a new radio button field with three options, and made it mandatory in the field configuration (for all issue types in the project).

None is no longer an option when creating a new issue.

One other thought though - could someone have added "none" as an option in the list of options for the field?

what version are you using?

JIRA 7.4 for that test, but I've also just tried it on 7.2, 6.4 and 5.2 to make sure my memory of the behaviour is correct.
