    Description

      Like JSU on Jira Server, Jira Cloud proposes a "Field required" validator in transitions.

       

      However, when fields are set as required in the workflow, they do not appear differently from optional fields in the screen.

      It is a big step backwards, and it can lead to confusing results.

      1. JSU on server proposes the best option: a red asterisk appears next to the field name.
      2. Jira Cloud could propose the same functionality

       

      Some community members suggest setting up directly a red asterisk or a "required" information in the screen name, but this workaround is way too rigid is some business cases.

      After clicking Create:

      At no point is the required field visually highlighted.

      Workaround

      Making the field required by specifying field behaviour in a field configuration (instead of via workflow validator) produces visual indicators. 

      Before clicking Create, there is a red asterisk:

       
      And if you click Create without filling in the required field it will be highlighted like so:
