Scriptrunner behaviour - set field mandatory if specifics values selected in another field


Hi all,

the title speaks by itself.

I tried using examples like or but I dont understand why mine is not working.

My project is a Service Desk, I want to make the end date field mandatory if the contract is one of these 3 values and here is the script :


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

def contract = getFieldById("customfield_10400")
def enddate = getFieldById("customfield_10402")
def contractlist = contract.getValue()

//if (contract.getValue() == "Secondment" || "Contract Employee" || "Intern") {
if (contractlist == "Secondment") {

else {



I put this script in the behaviour/contract field, and it does not work (with required tick off or on it is the same).

I dont get it.


I could use some help :)

My co-worker helped me with this, I dont know if it is the easiest possible but it works now :-)


import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def contract = getFieldById("customfield_10400")
FormField enddate = getFieldById("customfield_10402")
String contractlist = (String) contract.getValue()

if (contractlist.equals("Secondment") || contractlist.equals("Contract Employee") || contractlist.equals("Intern")) {
else {
