Make JUST "Time Spent" field required for certain transitions



I am trying to use workflow transition validators to force users to fill out time spent only during certain transitions.  None of my attempts have been successful.  Do you have any recommendations?  Thanks.

Hi Jonathon,

We have taken your query into account and have already started working on it. We would be releasing a newer version with the CFs working well with the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions and its validators.

We will let you know as soon as we release these changes.



Hi Jonathon,

We are happy to let you know that we have released a new version of our plugin (v1.4.5 and v1.8.5), with a new Workflow Validator.

This validator will check for the time spent field in the Log Work (By Roles) custom field, and if it is not provided, it will fail the transition with error.

You can find this validator with the name : "Log Work (By Roles) has Time Spent Validator".

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further queries.
