Scriptrunner Validator: Check that two checkboxes are not checked Edited

I have two checkbox fields. If one is checked, the other cannot/should not be checked and vice versa. I have a Behaviour set up to disable one checkbox if the other is checked, but somehow an issue slipped by. To prevent this from happening again, in addition to the Behaviour, I wanted to add a validator to ensure that the two cannot both be checked in order to Create the issue. Therefore, I set up a Custom Validator on the Create transition. It looks like this:

 

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Category;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils;
import com.opensymphony.util.TextUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;


def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfValue1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Custom Field 1")
def cfValue2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Custom Field 2")

if(cfValue1== 'Yes'){
if(cfValue2 == 'Yes'){
return false
}
return true
}
else{return true}

 

There's no error being thrown, but the issue can be created with both checkboxes checked (Yes). I would appreciate a suggestion.

Your problem is that value of checkbox custom field is not of String type. I think this custom field contains collection of options. If both fields have only Yes value,the simplest condition is

if(cfValue1 && !cfValue1.isEmpty() && cfValue2 && !cfValue2.isEmpty()){ return false; }

I tried it and tested it by checking both boxes, and the issue was still created. :(

Here's what the validator code looked like:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import org.apache.log4j.Category;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils;
import com.opensymphony.util.TextUtils
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;


def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cfValue1 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Custom Field 1")
def cfValue2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectsByName("Custom Field 2")

if(cfValue1 && !cfValue1.isEmpty() && cfValue2 && !cfValue2.isEmpty()){ return false;
}

Did I possibly mess it up?

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
