Defining Field Rules
Field rules define the behavior and constraints on fields. Field rules are additional elements that are listed inside <FIELD></FIELD> blocks. For example, if a field is required, the XML that defines the field might look as follows:
<FIELD refname="System.Priority" name="Priority" type="String"> <HELPTTEXT>Enter the business priority of the bug</HELPTEXT> <REQUIRED /> </FIELD>
