Is it possible to make field mandatory for specific projects only when screens are shared


One of our JIRA users wants to be make certain fields mandatory only for her projects. However, other projects also share the same issue screens. Hence, making the fields mandatory will affect other projects as well. Other than creating new screens for the requested projects, is there any other way?

That is exactly what the field configuration schemes are for (mandatory has nothing to do with screens - all screens do is list fields to be presented)

You need to divide your field configuration schemes into two - one for each group of projects.

I was so hoping this could be acheived without having to touch the field configuration schemes. :(

That's what the schemes are for. How else would you do it? (Well, without rewriting the whole screen and scheme setup)


if the fields itself are shared by a number of screeens then is there a way to make it required for one project while all the others remain unaffected?

You can add a validator to the WF to enforce the field to be required (but this assumes that your projects have unique WFs).
