How to validate issue depending on number components selected? Edited

I  am trying to do a simple validator that checks to see if more than one component has been selected. I have been trying to use scriptrunner, but I am definitely missing some fundamental logic here. I've tried researching and scrapping a few different things together. I found some deprecated solutions, but nothing that works after 7.0. 

Here's what I have:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor 
def compnum = issue.componentObjects*.size()
compnum = 1

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Josh,


You can try this code :

import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

if(issue.getComponents().size() < 2) {
throw new InvalidInputException("components", "You have to select more than one component.")
