Is there a way to show all multi checkbox custom field?

I created a custom field with multi checkboxes (around 10).

It doesn't show any of these unless there is a value. So i put a default value, but the other ones don't show unless i select the default one.

Is there a way to show all these checkboxes without having them checked?

If you set the custom field to be required in the field configuration scheme, all checkboxes will show up, even without setting a default value. This does require the custom field to have ANY value in ALL statuses of an issue. If you want the checkbox only to show up and require a value at a certain transition, first make sure you have the "JIRA Suite Utilities" add-on turned on (under manage add-ons). Next, you add the "Fields Required" validator to the transition where you want the multi checkbox to be required. Make sure the custom field is being displayed on the screen that is configured to show up when performing this transition.

How do I set this to have ANY value in ALL statuses of an issue?

I marked it required and as soon as one is selected, all of the non selected ones go away. While the select one stays
