I have searched for this in the forum and have found similar things and indeed check the suggestions out but I haven't yet solved my issue. Basically, there is a default field (Found In) to capture the version. I want that to be a required field when creating a BUG (only). However, I'm stumbling out of the gate because I can't even get it to display at all. Here is what I have checked:
In the edit screen of an issue I have selected "Configure Fields" and "Where is My Field" entering "Found In" and it replies with all green check marks: "the "found in" field should be present on the form you are viewing". Hmmm, that sneaky field is good at hiding!
In admin/issues/customfields i have the Found In w/ Issue type(s): Bug and applicable context to Global context.
I also have the Found In set to Required in the Default Field Configuration.
Finally what is perplexing me further is that I have the "Reproducibility" field set to required for Bugs and it shows up in the create screen just fine.
Has to be something simple but I'm not finding it.
I believe they exist there but maybe i'm looking in the wrong place? I have inserted a couple images to illustrate what I am looking at and assume this is what you are referring to. Thanks for you assistance!
You may be on to something but a bit confused...
One of the things I tried yesterday was to actually create a version in one of my projects just to see if the field would be hidden if no versions have ever been created, but that did not resolve the issue. I agree that the issue may be related somehow to accessibility to the versions. With that out of the way, looking at Field Configurations I don't see Versions; but a bit confused since available versions wouldn't be a field so maybe i'm looking in the wrong place? The only thing i see related to versions is the field Affected Versions and Fix Versions which are autocomplete fields based on versions recorded. It is worth mentioning that I can see and select the version I create (and released) in those two fields.
You are correct. "Versions" is not exactly a custom field but a source for "version picker" type custom fields. That is why "Affected Versions" and "Fix Versions" can see your versions.
What is the custom field type of "Found In"? When was this custom field created? If it's just recently, try running a "Reindex" to the whole system.
sorry for delay in responding here. see screenshots below. the type is JIRA Released Version History. I never created it as it is part of the default fields. Regardless I have done a number of re-indexing as I make other changes w/o any sign of making the FI field visible.
