I managed to add custom fields in the user profile admin page like this.

The problem is when I add required="true" or required="required" on fields, the submit button do action without checking required empty inputs.

The submit is running by Ajax ?

How can I force to make required fields in this admin page ?

Actually, in profile.php, edit-user.php and new-user.php, you have to :

  1. add form-required class on <tr>, not on the input field
  2. add aria-required="true" on the input field
