You can't, see the restriction of JIRA Cloud.

Please get in touch with atlassian support.

The fact that that field is locked means that you can't change its configuration. This is because that is meant to be managed by JIRA Agile.

So, your problem is most likely rooted somewhere else, not in that field being locked. That always is.
