Make a field required for one project but not for another

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)

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Specifying+Field+Behaviour

another one is by configuring field required validator on required transition

check this

You would need to have two field configurations (one with component mandatory and one optional) see Rambanans first link. Then add those field configuration to the field configuration schemes in those projects (they need to use different ones)

Yes, you need to create two field configurations.

I can't figure out what to do when I created the second field configuration. How do I assign it to the project?
