@sanjay_sapra  You will need to  create a  separate field configuration  for each project  and make those  field mandatory


Kind regards,

Hi @sanjay_sapra ,


Create a New Field configuration 

and add Mandatory for "Description" and "Roll Back Plan".


Create a New Field Configuration Scheme 

Associate the New Field Configuration with an issue type. 

and apply it to second project.

Can I have Different Required Fields for Different Issue Types?

Yes, as long as it is a different issue type. Required fields, at creation time are controlled by the field configuration scheme. That scheme is composed of one or more field configurations. Every issue type can have its own field configuration inside the field configuration scheme. If you have 5 issue types and 1 has special needs you create a field configuration for the 4 issue types and another for the 1 issue type. Then you combine them into a field configuration scheme and apply that to the project. When an issue is created, it looks for a field configuration for that issue type and uses it. If it doesn't find one it uses the default in the configuration scheme.  Copy/paste this link for more information. 

Thanks all for input , i have worked as per suggested steps for creation of new field configuration scheme and working fine . 

Thanks for support .
