validator scripts not working with the bulk close operation

Hi All,

I have the following script added to the workflow validator conditon during the close operation. This works only when i try to close a single issue but not during bulk close.

 

Please help me out

def demoSelect = getFieldByName("Reason for Closure")
def demoMultiTxt = getFieldByName("RRM Ticket")
// Get the Value of the Select List Field
def selectedVal = demoSelect?.getValue()
if (selectedVal?.toString()?.equalsIgnoreCase("Risk Accepted")) {
    
               demoMultiTxt?.setRequired(true)
} else {
                    
                demoMultiTxt?.setRequired(false)
}

You say "workflow validator condition", but that's unclear.  Is this a condition OR a validator?

Actually, it looks more like a behaviour though - if that is the case, then it won't work.  A behaviour like this makes the field mandatory for the user on the front end, via the browser.  They have no effect on bulk-edits - there's nothing to "set required" there.  A validator could be coded to check the input is valid though, that would catch any broken bulk-edits.

Thanks - is there any other way i can achieve that feature during the bulk edits

What feature?   I already said you need to add a validator if you want to block unwanted bulk-edits.

 

Hi , Sorry - i want to make a field mandatory based on the value from select list. I want that to happen during the bulk edits.

 

Is it possible?

Thanks for your help. I am able to find a way to make it work on the bulk edit option using your answer above

> want to make a field mandatory based on the value from select list.

Add a validator to the transition
