Hi @Евгений Фарсалов  - You can modify the Field Configuration for that project to make the Linked Issue field required.

Then you would need to add a validator in your workflow to set the value of the Linked Issues field to the desired type. 

The first problem is that I'm not sure if I make it required will it become required in all types of issues? I need it required only in subtask but it also exists in other types.

You can attach it to only one Issue type. 

So, you would have a Field Configuration Scheme with multiple Field Configurations - one for Sub-task and one for everything else. 

Thanks! It worked just like you said!

Great - glad I could help!

Hi John,


After making Linked issues as required in Filed configuration, I am not able to see Linked issues in Validators.

And I can see a Start mark above Linked issues filed while creating the ticket, But ticket is getting created whit out giving any issue also.

Please help to resolve this.
