We’ve just released the second Release Candidate for Jira 8.16 (Data Center & Server).
This release fixes the bug that doesn’t allow you to configure custom fields that don’t support default values. The bug was introduced in previous EAPs and was a result of our changes to system fields. We’ve managed to fix it quickly, so the official release will follow soon. You can read more about the bug in this thread. Thanks again @PascalPerreault for reporting it!
