Link JIRA issue to Confluence on transition

I'd like on a specific transition to have a screen show up querying the user to put a link to Confluence.

No, I am not talking about Validatory, I am talking about using a post-function to add a Link. You can also use a Validator during the transition if you want to check for a link.
