Hi @viswa_reddy 

Please let me know if this link satisfies your requirement or we can look into a validator script in Scriptrunner.


Hi Pramodh,

I don't see any link. Did you shared something?

Hi Pramodh, 

Thank you for the response. I think my requirement will be full filled using script runner validator only. 

Using one Validator, I made linked issues mandatory, But I want to restrict the linked issues to a single issue type. While adding the linked issue, they can not add a random ticket. The ticket which they are adding should be a particular issue type ticket with a relation of chaild of. 

Hope this can be done using script runner validator. Please help me with the script.
