Removed a required field from a screen still makes that field required entry on new issues

I have a required field on a screen that is no longer needed.  I remove that field from the screen.  However now when creating new issues, that field is still required even though it does not show on the screen.

How can I fix this?

You need set this filed not required in the project field configuration scheme. You can find more information here:

Make the field optional in the field configuration, or remove it from the context for the project (the second one will destroy any data in issues the field was on)

Changing this field to optional worked.  Thanks.
