Help text for Epic link field based on selected Epic and its status Edited

Is this Possible?

The help text isn’t conditional. At least I have never experienced this to be the case. You might look at an addon like Scriptrunner to see if it would allow you to prevent linking to a Done Epic.

I don't want to prevent it , Its just that when a user creates a new ticket in an done epic I just want to notify him saying the epic is done,

Understood. I would suggest two actions:

  • use the Search bar above in the Community to see if others have discussed this preciously
  • go to marketplace and see if there are any addons that might allow conditional help text
