I was able to create the script. For reference, I have provided the script below.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.layout.field.FieldLayoutManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.layout.field.EditableFieldLayout
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.layout.field.FieldLayout
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.layout.field.FieldLayoutItem
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.FieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance();
FieldLayoutManager fieldLayoutManager = componentManager.getFieldLayoutManager()
FieldManager fieldManager = componentManager.getFieldManager()
ProjectManager projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(ProjectManager)

Project project = projectManager.getProjectObjByName("Content Delivery");
def projectID = project.getId();
FieldLayout fieldLayout = fieldLayoutManager.getFieldLayout(projectID, "49");

EditableFieldLayout editFieldLayout = fieldLayoutManager.getEditableFieldLayout(fieldLayout.getId())
CustomField field = fieldManager.getCustomField('customfield_12024');
FieldLayoutItem fieldLayoutItem = editFieldLayout.getFieldLayoutItem(field);



I tried using method fieldlayout.makeRequired(fieldLayoutItem);  But this does not work. Does anyone know how to do this ?
