Scripting Checkbox Behaviour using Scriptrunner

Peter DeWitt Community Leader Dec 20, 2017

OK here is my issues.  I have a situation where I want to make a field required when a user checks a check box.  For this discussion my checkbox field is checkBoxField with a single choice of Yes.  The field I want to make required is requiredTextField.  I am using the Behaviours add-on of  Scriptrunner wit the following Configuration:

 

The behavior is mapped to ProjectA:Story

Validation Script attached to checkBoxField

Here is my script. 

def description = getFieldByName("requiredTextField")
def checkBox = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())

def selectedOption = checkBox.getValue() as String
def isYesSelected = selectedOption == "Yes"

description.setRequired(isYesSelected)

 

I've done this before with select lists but for some reason the checkbox is kicking my butt. Any help and/or advice would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  .pd

Hi Peter,

What is the exact problem you are experiencing? Is the text field not correctly getting set as required? I've tried reproducing your setup on my local Jira instance and it's working correctly, but it may be that my configuration is different to yours in some important respect.

Thanks,

Jake

To reproduce on my system (not that it will be the same as yours)

1. navigate to the correct project.

2. Open an existing Story.

3. Click the Edit Issue button.

4. Click the correct tab.

5. Scroll down and check the checkbox.

the requiredTextField is not required.

@Joanna Choules, thanks for the confirmation that the script works.  I found a typo in the field name.  Fixing this fixed the problem.
