Cause

If a field is bound to a row of a table, the mandatory will not work on all the table items.

When you have data that is not present all the time (know as Lazy Loading), the Mandatory Check will not be allowed (in the case of tables, for example, when you enter data).

Thus, the marking as mandatory option was disable for this scenario.

Resolution

This is the standard behavior of the system.
