Design Question On Checkbox Field : The Checkbox Field is always setted as mandatory (Required) and the Constraint Option (on field configuration/definition) doesn't exist. (Doc ID 1945416.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion CRM Application Composer Cloud Service - Version 11.1.9.0.0 and later
Oracle Fusion CRM Application Composer - Version 11.1.9.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Checkbox Field is always setted as mandatory (Required) and the Constraint Option (on field configuration/definition) doesn't exist.
A Checkbox is concectually never Mandatory because it has only 2 values possible and NULL value is not between these.
The Required option on this kind of fields is misleading.

What is the intended design ?
