Scriptrunner Behaviour to edit a custom field IF the field has certain value during transition

Hi Team,


I'm trying to put together a behaviour in scriptrunner where during transition (RFP to Implementing) user required to change a custom field IF this field has certain value (Unknown, Backlog, Test A), lam pretty new to coding, any idea is appreciated.


Field Name: Planned Version

Field type: Version Picker (multiple version)

Condition: ask to update field if the field has the value (Unknown, Backlog, Test A)


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def sourceStatusId = jiraHelper.getStatusByName("RFP").iddef targetStatusId = jiraHelper.getStatusByName("IImplementing").id
def PlannedVersionField = = getFieldById("customfield_10000")

if ( = "targetStatusId") {
if (getFieldById.value == "Unknown" || "Backlog" || "Test A") {
ASK user to update the field "Planned Version"

Here is how I would do it

def plannedVersionField = = getFieldById("customfield_10000")

def goingToImplementing = destinationStepName == 'Implementing'
def comingFromRFM = underlyingIssue? == 'RFP

def valuesThatRequireChange = ['Unknown', 'Backlog', 'Test A']

if(comingFromRFM && goingToImplementing){
if(plannedVersionField.value in valuesThatRequireChange){
plannedVersionField.setError("Please update. ${valuesThatRequireChange.join(',')} are not allowed when movig from RFP to Implementing")

to do this, you could add a Simple scripted validator on the transition with this Condition:

!["Unknown", "Backlog", "Test A"].contains(cfValues['Your Custom Field'])

and setting the Error Message with a message like the following:

Please, update the field: Planned Version

And selecting the Field: Planned Version.
