How to Remove 'Unknown' Option from 'Component' and 'Fix Versions'

There is always an Unknown option in Component and Fix Version/s fields when creating/editing an issue.

To remove the field, make the Components and Fix Version/s field a required field in field configuration Administration >> Issue Fields >> Field Configurations. This will cause the Unknown option to disappear and also make the field as a mandatory field on Create Issue screen. For more information on field configuration, please refer to our documentation on Specifying Field Behavior.
