Target version:-


Currently, there is no support to require a target version and category to be entered on an issue. For all situations or projects this is not necessary but in our use and I assume others, these fields are required and there is no way to make them required. It would be nice to have a project setting to require one or both of these fields.

It would also be a nice feature to provide a default version when a new issue is created. This would have to be maintained on the project version.

+1 I have requests for this functionality.

+1 as well. We require people (operationally) to enter a version for bugs (not for features), but I don't see a way to require this in Redmine

+1, to set Target version to Required and Providing a default value make it convenient and standard to create a issue.

#5 Updated by Dipan Mehta almost 10 years ago

Requiring a target version and category is now achieved (at least post 2.0.x). Setting the Default Target value for new issue will be available under #1828.

Add related/duplicate #1828.
