Are you on Jira Server/DC or Cloud?

In both cases, you can use a Related Issue Status Validator from our JMWE app on the "Create" transition of the story/task/whatever workflow (the workflow(s) of the issues that can belong to an Epic). This will not _hide_ the Create button (obviously) but it will display an error message when you try to submit your new issue.

Can we have a call on zoom if thats sounds ok to you ?


you need to open a support request with Innovalog:

We don't offer Zoom-based support though. You'll need to share your current Validator configuration and the problem you're encountering.
