Make a field mandatory during a transition without an app/addon

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Dec 05, 2022

So I've been working with Cloud for a while now and always tend to use the "field required" validator there.

However, switching back to a client on DC (9.4/5.4 LTS) I'm missing that validator. 

I'm away we can get it using an app (,choice%20as%20the%20required%20field.) but it seems a bit much getting any of these if we only need the "field required" validator :)

Sooo, anybody got an idea how to do this without any additional apps? If not i'll have to see which of the 3 we'll invest in. (I moving more towards Automation for all my automating needs so tend to use them less and less)

Hey @Dirk Ronsmans ,

unfortunately this simple validator is not builtin on server/data center instances. For my knowledge you can't do that without an external app.

That's what I was afraid of.. I had hope that with the newer versions maybe they added it :)

Got any recommendations on what app to go for? I used to be a big fan of Scriptrunner but like I said with Automation becoming more prevalent and Forms taking a big step in  replacing behaviours it's not that much front of mind anymore.

I know that. A very common feature like that should be builtin as for JIRA cloud instance.

I use for a lot of customers.
