Groovy: validate correct link type


I need to validate on create transition, that issue has a specific link (name: CR).

I have scriptrunner if it helps.


No expirience in groovy tho...

Hi Jan,

There is an almost exact example (you only have to change the linkDescription) in the documentation

And this validator will be on the Create step.

Hi Thanos,

Maybe I'm not using this correctly but In my experience the example script does not work when creating an item. Because the item has not yet been created and the link has not been created the validator simply throws an exception every time I click "Create".

Placing the validator at the next transition always works however.

It's killing my CPU... this script.cpu_jira.PNG

Highly unlikely for that script to cause a CPU spike.

Try something more simple, like just throwing an exception every time

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

throw new InvalidInputException("You must link a blocker issue at this transition")

How to add a condition to this code.. so it would work only for projectkey= CR ?
