Set Log Work Mandatory based on a select list field


I m using the script runner and I want to make log work mandatory if select list is not empty. 

Any suggestions please.

For your requirement, you should look into ScriptRunner's Behaviours. 

To start, you should look at the Behaviours documentation at] along with the Behaviours tutorial at

Below is an example Server-Side Behaviour code which shows how you can make the Log work field(s) mandatory:-

def required = getFieldById(fieldChanged)
def requiredValue = required.value.toString()

def logwork = getFieldById("log-work-time-logged")
logwork.required = false

if(requiredValue == "Yes") {
  logwork.required = true

Below is a print screen of the Behaviour configuration:-



Below is a print screen of how the Behaviour works:-

Hope this helps to solve your question :)
