How to make Story Points field mandatory for the issues in an active sprint?

Is there a way to prevent adding issues to an active sprint when the Story Points field is empty?

Also to prevent start a sprint if there is an issue with empty Story Points.

You can setup a "Validation" on the Transition for the first workflow step in the workflow. The validation will be that "Story Points field is not EMPTY".

hope that helps.

I might be missing something but as far as I know Jira Workflows do not have Agile states. All the states are classic issue states like open, closed, in progress, etc. So basically I need a state like In-Active-Sprint to be able to accomplish what I want and to be able to add that validation before the transition to this state.

Is there a way to create custom states for Jira Workflows?

I have same problem here, any updates on this?

Also you can make the story points field mandatory. This is a workaround

I know but I don't neccessarily want to assign story points when the issue is in backlog. I just want to enforce it when it gets to the active sprint.

any updates for this scneario? I am currently running into this issue.

Q: Is there a way to prevent adding issues to an active sprint when the Story Points field is empty?

A: what if Board's filter has <<AND "Story Points" is not EMPTY>> clause?

If I'm not mistaken, the board filter is also used for the Backlog view, so making that change will indeed make it impossible to add new tickets to sprint, because they will all be gone.

Anyone managed to find some solution to this? Because making story points as mandatory while creation is not a good idea as we are estimating issues during Groomings.
