Can I use a IF condition in the Simple Scripted Validator?

Is it possible to use a IF condition in a Simple Scripted Validator? I am trying to build a validator for the below objective, can some one help?

If (Condition1 = true)

set custom field values = "A"

else if (Condition2 = true)

set custome field value = "B"


set custom field values = "C"

Sorry, my example is misleading, actually it is supposed to like this:

If (Condition1 = true)

set field "A" mandatory

else if (Condition2 = true)

set field "B" mandatory


set field "C" mandatory


Certain fields should become mandatory based on certain conditions. e.g. if a check box is checked, one of the text field is mandatory.

You can try creating your own script and it in the "Script Validator"

Can you please provide me a sample script, I can develop mine based on that.

If I understand it correctly, the Scripted Validator is to validate something first and  restrict the transition if it fails. It doen't update anything. I think what you are looking for is a Post-Function "Update Issue Field" using JIRA Suite Utilities.


Hi Gabrielle

Developed the below code, any idea whats wrong with the IF loop? My code inside the IF condition is not executed at all even though the condition is true. cfenvironmentvalue is the value from a Drop Down field.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.resolution.Resolution
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
CustomField cfjiraorjama = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Item(s) are Managed in JIRA or CATS?")
CustomField cfenvironment = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Build Environment (Subversion)")
CustomField cfPcrBundDelNum = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("PCR/Bundle/Deliverable Numbers")
CustomField cfUatCatsConf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("UAT: CATS Confirmation")
CustomField cfUatJiraConf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("UAT: JIRA Confirmation")
CustomField cfTrnPrdCatsConf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("TRN/PRD: CATS Confirmation")
CustomField cfTrnPrdJiraConf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("TRN/PRD: JIRA Confirmation")

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueManager()
MutableIssue myIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject("CAR-1928")
def cfjiraorjamavalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfjiraorjama)
def cfenvironmentvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfenvironment)
def cfPcrBundDelNumvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfPcrBundDelNum)
def cfUatCatsConfvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfUatCatsConf)
def cfUatJiraConfvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfUatJiraConf)
def cfTrnPrdCatsConfvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfTrnPrdCatsConf)
def cfTrnPrdJiraConfvalue = myIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cfTrnPrdJiraConf)
def result
if (cfenvironmentvalue=="PRD"){
result = cfjiraorjamavalue
} else {
result = cfenvironmentvalue
return result
