Requared field does not show a Boolean

Hi
4.5, sp 23
I'm confused, if I'd like set any Boolean field as mondatory after activation, this fields does not shows in "Requared field" list :( .
But before when I used sp17 I did it for some Boolean filed and this is working now too as requared. Is anybody have the same problem? or have solution?

Re: Requared field does not show a Boolean

By definition a boolean should only have 2 values (True or False) so it should always have a value. I think that is why boolean fields are not listed in the mandatory field list. Of course we know there is a third value (null) and that is what you need to test for. You could use a UI rule to test for null in the field.

Jonathon, you spoke already know infrmations. I did it by SP 17 and 18, if this options not be able for Boolean from start - no a question, but that was!

Hi Vasily,

Mark, in your SD version this fields is possible manage by "Requared field" ?
Restart not help, I look on one other server with SP 22, the pictire the same.

Hi Vasily,

I can't check at the moment but will have a look when I can.

Just one other thing in the meantime. The boolean field. Are you using one of the out of box fields or using the new ability to create a custom boolean field?

This is predefined to use CF but not active, not created as new and in list no old boolean CF, activated before.
