you should have a look at the field configuration scheme configured for that project. It maps field configuratiosn (e.g. required fields) and issue types.

You have to use different field configurations if a field should be mandatory for one issue type and optional for another...


i think you are usins same field scheme for all issue type and made it fields are required/optional on that

so you need to make sure each issue type have their own field scheme associated then we can make field required/optional on specific field scheme

check this doc

Check the "field configuration schemes" you have set on the project. I suspect you haven't told it "use scheme 1 for issue-type A and scheme 2 for issue-type B"
