Remove the "None" option from radio buttons

When creating radio buttons for the page where you resolve or close an issue, the system automatically produces a radio button called "none". Is there a way to remove this option?

If you need the user to select a value for the radio button (i.e. the field is mandatory) and just want to remove the NONE, you can set it to REQUIRED in the field configuration and the NONE option will disappear (at least in JIRA 6.0.1).

As an administrator, click the COG icon to the left of your avatar, choose issues, then field configurations and then against the field you want to change, click the Required link under the operations column. Now the radio button will be mandatory and the none option disappears.

Many thanks, that worked well with Jira 5.1.3

We've got a couple how-to's on this. It's a fairly popular customisation:

Those aren't for radio buttons, but it's a similar configuration. Also I haven't verified those in 4.3 and 4.4. Is that enough to get started? Let me know if I should write up a similar specific one for radio buttons, or if you get stuck.

You have to make the field required in order for none to disappear, others may able to be comment on a hack or something, but out of the box none appears because the field is not required.

This is a problem for us often as well.

This does not appear to work. We made the feild required, and set the default to another option. None still appeared.

In v4.3.3

I also had to remove 2 extra lines in the top.


<input$!{checked} class="radio" id="cf-${}" name="${}" type="radio" value="-1"

<label for="cf-${}">$i18n.getText('AUI.form.label.none')</label>

I’m trying to remove ”none” from radio button field but it’s not working
I removed these two lines from edit-radio.vm file

#if ($hadAnyValidOptions == false)

<input checked="checked" class="radio" id="cf-${}-none" name="${}" type="radio" value="-1" />

<label for="cf-${}-none">$i18n.getText('AUI.form.label.none')</label>


And restarted the server..

What more to do? Did I miss something?

I don’t want to make these fields required

It worked to remove “none” from select list fields (How to Remove 'NONE' from a Select List Custom Field)

You have to make the field required, then the 'none' won't be there anymore.

Making the field required is not letting the issue created. The required field containing screen is attached to the state that comes later in workflow.

But This workaround not letting the issue create.

Behaviors (part of ScriptRunner) can solve this scenario.  You can set the field to Required only on a specified transition screen or state.

Adding behaviour didnt hide "none" option in my case
