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?

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!
