Force comment field when changing status to done based on label?


Is it possible to force a comment field when changing the status to done, but only with issues that have a certain label?

So for example what I want is: an issue with the specific label will force you to write a comment once you change the status to done.

Other suggestions are welcome as well!

Hi Youri - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I would suggest taking a look at the JWME app to help with that.

With JMWE, you need to add a Build-your-own (scripted) Validator on the transition to Done with the following script (Jira expression):

!!issue.labels || !issue.labels.includes("mylabel") || !!issue.comments && issue.comments.some(it => == null)
