I want to make the Components field a required field on one project, but not a required field on another project.
E.g. When creating an Issue in "Project A", I want the Component field to be a mandatory field, but when creating an Issue in "Project B" I do not want Component field to be mandatory or infact displayed.
How do I do this? At the moment I only seem to be able to globally control if the field is mandatory for all projects.
you can make component field mandatory in two ways
1. you can make mandatory on field configuration, go to the field configutation which you configured for that issue type on which you want to make mandatory then search for component field and click on rquired option
check here for more information(Making a field required or optional)
another one is by configuring field required validator on required transition
See section Associating a field configuration scheme with a project
The whole flow is:
1. Create to "Jira Settings" > Issues > Fields section > Fields Configarations
2. There will be Default Fields Configaration created and we need to create the one with the field we want to be required > click on "Add Field Configuration" > Name it (my is "Required"
3. Click on the "Required" next to the field you want to be required (it will get "Required" next to its name after this.
4. Go to "View Field Configuration Schemes" (on the same page on the blue panel) > "Add Filed Configuration scheme"
5. Go to the project you want this field to be required > Project Settings > Fields > Actions > Use a Different scheme > Select the scheme created in the previous step > Associate
6. Field gets assosiated and required while creating Bug for this Test project. And not required for the other projects
7. To add Issue types you want your field to be required > clicl "Actions" > "Edit Fields" > click "Assosicate an issue type with a field configuration" > select the issue type and your field configuration
Note that when you create a new project you need to associate it again as by default Default Configuration is applied.
