Required option not present on Default control after upgrade



After upgrading PRPC 6.1 SP2 to Pega 7.1.7, all fields with pre-existing 'Default' control no longer hold the "Required" option in the properties. As a result, this validation no longer fires at runtime. 
Newly created controls do not have this issue.

This option highlighted in the below screenshot is missing.
