Problem with epic creation and "how to test"



I am trying to create "epic" in a project and it says "How To Test: How To Test is required." I searched the documentation/forums etc, but can not find anything.


Can someone give a hint?

You have created a field called "how to test", and you've set it to be mandatory for Epics (and probably other types) in the project's "Field configuration" 

You'll need to make it optional in there, or create a new field configuration where it is optional (I'd copy the existing one to a new name) and then use the project "field configuration scheme" to say "use new field configuration for Epics"



I found the cause shortly after posting the question, but forgot to update the post. One of my colleagues created the property, but did not put it for all project.


Now it's OK, many thanks:)
