Include a screen to a workflow transition in a issue field configuration scheme


I have created a screen (PDCD - Proyectos de desarrollo Pantalla transición Cancelado) to request a field (“motivo cancelación”) when transitioning between 2 states of a workflow.




I need that field to be required. To do this I have created a issue field configuration (Configuración campos proyectos de desarrollo - transición cancelado) in which I have set the " motivo cancelación " field as mandatory.

However, I don't know how this issue field configuration is assigned to the issue field configuration scheme, so that when making the transition the field is mandatory.




Thank you

Hello @Eduardo García Moreno 

When you make a field Mandatory in the Field Configuration then that field will be mandatory all the time - when issues are created, edited, and transitioned.

If you want to make the field required only when the transition occurs, then you need to add the screen to the Transition in the Workflow, and you need to add a Validator to the Transition in the Workflow to check that the field has a value.

This document provides information on adding a screen to a workflow transition.

This document provides information on Advanced Workflow configuration including Validators.

Done. Thank you very much

Hi Eduardo,

Adding the field to the Field Configuration will make it mandatory when the issue is created. If you just want it to be mandatory when you transition the issue, then add a Validator to the transition for Field Required.
