I'm using Address Field module

I want to make it a required field but only the Country and City values. I want to leave the zip code and Address as optional. I don't find a way to configure it like this. Is it possible?

To provide more info, I am using Geocoder to fill a Geofield field. I want it to be able to geolocate with City and Country if only that are provided if also zip code and address are provided use them too.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that if I make the whole Address field non-required works as I want to, but I would like to make Country and City required, another way to look at the problem.

  • @Mołot yeah it looks like its been a problem for some years now...I think I will let it be for now and work in other issues and go back in the refining stage of the site. Thanks again for your help! Commented Dec 4, 2013 at 14:47
  • I was helping you with it before you knew you need it :P reviewing patches since 2012. Sorry for a bitter tone of my first comment, but as you may tell, I'm tired with it.

  • The fact that it still hasn't reached a working consensus (there are many intermediate patches) shows there's still work to be done. I'm slowly working my way through these issues, but ultimately there were bigger issues to tackle first. Also, form altering will work just fine even without a configuration for it.

  • @RyanSzrama Thanks for your work. It is not an urgent matter so I can get along with letting all fields as optional. Is there anyway to keep up to date with the development of the module? Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 12:30

I would use form_alter to hook into the form, identify the form element and unset or make required FALSE


mymodule_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id){

  if($form_id == 'xyz'){
   $form['zipcode']['#required'] = FALSE;
   $form['address']['#required'] = FALSE;
