Is there a way to remove the value "Unknown" from the version selection dropdown?
We have projects that have a required version field, and we want them to pick a valid version. "Unknown" is presented in the selection list, even though it is not in the version list for the projects.
"Unknown" is what Jira displays for "no version data". It's for us humans who don't necessarily understand that a blank line on a drop-down list means "no data"
The question here is about determining what you *actually* want to happen here. There are four options:
You can edit field configuration and mark field as required. Please refer to https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Specifying+Field+Behavior#SpecifyingFieldBehavior-Makingafieldrequiredoroptional
Thanks, Alexey, for the reference. Our problem is not how to make the field required, but rather how to disallow the value of "Unknown" from being selected.
Some teams actually use "Unknown" as a version for their project, and it is included in the project version list. Other teams wish to have their members select one of the actual releases for the project. These teams do not have "Unknown" as a release for their project, but it shows up in the selection list anyway.
We need to understand why they can select "Unknown" when it is not in their project's version list.
