So, while it is nice to be able to set a custom field as required, the error message the user gets makes no sense for lots of users; i.e.,
customfield_10100: Customer Name is required.
Why on Earth would anyone want to see customfield_10100. For my particular set of users I am attempting to appease currently, I'll get crucified if this is my solution to making custom fields required. Do I really have to jump into velocity or whatever to remove this garbage? Please help.
I have implemented mandatory field setting in the workflows, and while I have issues with this:-
1) JIRA doesn't add an asterisk
2) Isn't consistent with the number of errors (i.e. may only print an error for 1 mandatory field at a time
The messages always uses the field name that I have given the custom field.
We are on 6.3 if that is of any help?
