While Moving issues from Project A to Project B i want the new field to be created in Project B

While Moving issues from Project A to Project B i want the new field to be created in Project B and it that field should be mandatory.

while moving issues from project A to Project B i want to create a new field called "Reason for change" and i want this mandatory. so that i will know the main reason why they are moving the issues.
i want to know how this can be Possible.
Thanks in advance.

Just adding to Curt's suggestion above, you could include a condition in your rule to check whether the "Reason for change" field has been populated, and if not, trigger appropriate notifications to encourage users to complete this field.

I've attached a screenshot as an example of how this might look.

Hope this helps!

Am I right in thinking you only want the field to be mandatory when an issue is "moved"?
That could be tricky. @Grigory Salnikov  suggestion is correct for making a field mandatory, but that will mean the field always needs to be populated.

Hi @SURESH G and welcome to our community!


Please have a look at the following workaround:

Make custom fields required in a workflow transition in Jira server

I appreciate your response.
what exactly i am looking is. when user move an issue from Project A to Project B then i want a field in Project B to be mandatory ( I want field required only when move issue is performed).

Or another possible case i am expecting is " when user move an issue from Project A to Project B then i want to ask for a comment in that case user have to update the comment.( so that i will know what exactly is the reason for moving issue to target project)


Thank you

Hmmm, not sure if that can be achieved.

But, what you could do is have an automation rule where whenever anything is moved into Project B, a comment is added saying who moved it and an email could be sent to the initiator (of the move) reminding them to add a comment explaining the move.

Not perfect, but a relatively easy option that would (hopefully) encourage the desired behavior.
