Field Required Validator or Behavior

Hi Team,


I want few fields required upon closing of ticket via scriptrunner or JSU, as this 2 add-ons we have.

So When some one click Close request and if Field A = ABC then it should check if field X & Y is not empty. Trying on various ways but couldnt succeed.

Trying Field Required Validator (Scriptrunner) but no luck, behavior will not fit as I need this on workflow transition. This is what I am using on behavior side but thats also not working.

Please help here for this one to make it work on workflow transition and what should I use.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def FieldA = getFieldById("customfield_15600")
FormField TrAMSFunctionalArea = getFieldById("customfield_15702")
String FieldA = (String) FieldA.getValue()
if (FieldA.equals("ABC") {
else {

Hi Rakesh, 

Here is a documentation that explain how to do it with apps such as JSU or Scriptrunner... do not code for that, there are existing validator with JSU or Scriptrunner ;)

I hope this helps ;)

Hi @Rakesh Jajper 

Do all the fields exist in Close transition screen? If not, getFieldById("customfield_xxxxx") doesn't work in bhv.

Also, I couldn't see FieldX and FieldY definition in your code.

I suggest you use setHelpText() within the code to see variable values step by step.

As I see, you use same variable "FieldA" twice in the code. Change to:

String FieldAVal = (String) FieldA.getValue()
Please also check this doc.
