Require 2 values for Affected Version(s)


When our testers creates a bug, I would like that they systematically indicate if this bug is present in the current and previous versions of our product. Something like "v20.2, v20.3" or "NOTv20.2, v20.3". i.e. entering "v20.3" is not good enough for me.

We are using the standard field "Affected Version(s)" and I would like to know if it is possible to enforce a control / post-function... that checks that the Affected Version(s) field has at least 2 values.

Thanks for your help.

You can do it using "Automation for Jira" available for free in your instance. You can also do it with any of the third-party apps like ScriptRunner, Jira Misc Workflow Extensions, etc. 



Hi Radhika,

Thank you for the advice.

"Automation for Jira" does not seem to be available for Jira Cloud.

I tried "Jira Misc Workflow Extensions" but the workflow validators are only applied when users transition the status of an existing issue, not when they create an issue. This does not work for me as I want to make this validation when creating the issue.

I did not try ScriptRunner has this seem to require coding skills.

Any other suggestion ?


Hi Charles,

you can use JMWE to create a Validator that is applied during issue creation. Just add the Validator to the "Create Issue" transition (from the black dot to the initial status).

Thanks David, that works 
Have a great day :)
