The first thought of course is to create an action which sets the field to an empty value… no such luck as the value is required!
The workaround is to set the field to the value of another field that doesn’t have a value.

- Add the new field to the form, ideally mark the field as read-only and turn off the visibility (if the field is not on the form this will not work)
- Create an action in your Business Rule which sets the value of the field you need to clear to the field value of the new empty field
