SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a custom content type with many required columns. The UI does not allow me to change a column from required to non-required (at least, I can't find a way to do it).

Is there a way to achieve this in the database or another means?

Otherwise, it seems all the fields have to be recreated -- a major pain with dozens of fields.

I found the solution. To achieve it via the UI, I go to Site Settings, Site Content Types, click on the custom content type, then click each field and voila! –  udog Apr 26 '12 at 7:03
