How do you make attachment required on issue creation only?

Jonathan James Apr 04, 2013

In this case, we use an Issue Collector mostly to create issues, not that it matters much. I understand the reasoning behind preventing this in general (see, but as the last comment states, it would be great to have this required for create only. Seeing that that issue was 2 major versions ago, I was hoping there would be a solution by now.

Hi Jonathan,

you can make Attachment required on Create screen by create Validator(Required field on Attachment) on Transition(Click on transition in workflow designer and add Validator- Required field and add Attachment).

I hope you have to enable free plugin Jira Suite Utilities when you have disabled it.

I think there are two solutions

The first solution is to use the jjupin plugin (SIL) or jss plugin (JPython) to write some script in the validor when you create issue

The second solution is to use javascript to check value of field attachement in the screen creation
