You'll need to find or write a validator add-on that can check the number of attachments.

It's a doddle if you've got something like the Script Runner add-on.

Hello Nic,

I tried below option. Still not working.

Add Validator –> Script Validator --> Simple Script --> Has one or more attachments

attachmentManager.getAttachments(issue).size() >= 3

I added three attachments, still JIRA is not allowing me to create issue.

I also tried other option, to have atleast one Pdf

attachmentManager.getAttachments(issue).any{it.filename.endsWith('.pdf')}

JIRA is not allowing me to create issue in this case also. 

Can you please help me in this?

Thanks,

I don't think it's as simple as that.

At the point that the validator runs on "create", the issue has not been created, so your code is fetching a 0 as it's not there. 

I'm not sure, off the top of my head, how to deal with that.

Not changed, I've not found a reason to look for this, so I've not found any code that might do it.

Can you add the validator on the next transition(s) in the workflow or write a postfunction that flags the issue and/or emails the creator somehow?

This would allow the creation of the issue, but prevent it from being acted upon further unless/until you have your three attachments.

I know it's not an exact solution, but maybe a possible workaround?
