Is there a way to lock an issue in a column until a criteria is met?

I am trying to find a way to have an issue not be able to be moved to next column until the description part in the issue is filled. Say there are 5 columns, the ticket should be able to be moved across column 1 to 3 even without Description but no one should be able to move it to column 4 unless it has its Description field filled with at least say 25 characters.

Is that even possible?

Thank you

Hi @aakanksha.choudhary   - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, the is possible. You can add a Validator to the transition to the status in question that requires the Description field to not be empty. 

Go to Settings > Issues > Workflows

Search for your workflow and select Edit

Click on transition that you want to set the validator for. Click on Conditions in the popup to the right. 

Thank you very much John! I will give it a try!
