How to set a custom field as mandatory based on Select List (single choice) field value ?


In the "create" screen I have a Select List (single choice) field with optional values: X and Y

and another Text Field (single line).

I want to make the Text Field mandatory but only if the value in the Select List is X.

Is it a configured JIRA option? if yes- how can I do this?

 if not- what is the simplest way to achieve this?

This widget could not be displayed.


Required ScriptRunner plugin, add this validation at required transition 

Here Single Select custom field (singleSelect) with Options X and Y where if X is selected then Text Field (textField) required 

(cfValues['singleSelect']?.value == 'X' && cfValues['textField'] != null) || (cfValues['singleSelect']?.value == "Y")




I see that the plugin is not free- Is there a free way to achieve this?

I don't think we can achieve without the plugin!

ok sad
