Hi @gabe vid 

Behaviours are based on combination of project and issue type.

This page has information about it.

What exactly are you trying to do in your code? Make the instance field mandatory when Issue Type is either Epic or Story? For which project?


Yes, that's what I'm trying to do

The project is selected in the behaviour "Mappings"

I need to do so cause I want the fields to be mandatory even in case you change the issue type of an old issue to the Epic or Story ones

Hi @gabe vid 

Try this code to make Instance field required when Issue Type is either Epic or Story.

def issueTypeValue = getFieldById(getFieldChanged()).getValue()
def instanceField = getFieldByName("Instance")

switch ( ) {

case "Epic":
case "Story":


I hope it helps.
