JIRA can't do this natively. This is only achievable with customization through javascript or similar. Are you interested in a solution like this?

I would be interested on that as well but first i would to check for some external plugins also which will enable a text field to enter bug ID only if Resolution = Duplicate, for other Resolution values it should not ask anything.

Thank you, I think I understand your requirements now.

Third Party Add-ons

Script Runner for JIRA also includes a modules called Behaviors which allows you to perform this via Javascript.

Finally, you can enter javascript into the Field Configuration description for that field and perform the job yourself.


warning None of these options are available for JIRA Cloud.

Hi Jamie,

Currently i am evaluating Script Runner add-on for my aforementioned requirement which goes like this:-

--> If Resolution is Duplicate then mandates a custom field to enter Duplicate of issue key.


I am trying to find any relevant scripts for this but couldn't find any, can you please help.
