Mandatory Fields when updating and re-assigning a defect

Jump to solution
Hi,

In our project, a defect is raised and asigned to a defect administrator, who then adds a comment and re-assigns to the appropriate person.

Since upgrading to 9.2, the closing date field has become mandatory on the defect form and she is unable to submit the defect without updating this field.

I've checked the project entities and this is not a mandatory field, can anyone suggest a direction?

Thanks in advance

Dawn

Make sure the field hasn't been defined as required through the Workflow.

I ended up removing it from the user's view in workflow and then adding it back in again. it wasn't set as required in workflow, but it's working as I expect now.

In workflow, remove and re-add the field to the groups view.
