Scriptrunner: Validator field required by value of another field

I want to make a field (Company and Role) mandatory in the Create screen if another field (Application Area)(select list) has the value "SL SAP ECC”.


I use a validator on transition Create.


import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours

import groovy.transform.BaseScript


@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours


def ApplicationAreaField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())

def CompanyandRoleField = getFieldByName("Company and Role")


String ApplicationAreaValue = ApplicationAreaField.getValue()


if (ApplicationAreaValue == 'SL SAP ECC') {


} else {




But JIRA gives the report about that field, regardless of which value is chosen in the select list.


Where do I make the mistake?

Adaptavist told me the following:


To achieve what you are asking you need to use a behaviour instead of a validation.

Can you try this code as a server side script for a behaviour on the "Application Area" field:


def ApplicationAreaField = getFieldByName("Application Area")
def CompanyandRoleField = getFieldByName("Company and Role")

ArrayList ApplicationAreaValue = ApplicationAreaField.getValue() as ArrayList

if (ApplicationAreaValue.contains("SL SAP ECC")){ 
} else{ 

 And this works for my situation

Hi Marco,

If we are talking about a transition validator, the script should be something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def cfMgr = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def companyAndRole = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfMgr.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Company and Role"))
def applicationArea = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfMgr.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Application Area"))

if(!companyAndRole && applicationArea.getValue().equals("SL SAP ECC")){
throw new InvalidInputException("Company and Role field is required!")
return true
