Thank you in advance.

For the first question,

- To disable a transition (if i understand correctly that's what you are asking), you need a plugin like Script Runner to write a custom condition.

- I don't understand what you mean by change of activity type, if it's a custom field you can use behaviours feature of Script Runner also. 

For the second question,

- You can use field configuration schemes of the project and make the field required.


Thank you.


The field Epic Link which I want to be required is locked. It shows: The custom field is managed by Jira Software and can not be modified.  

Is it possible to configure locked field?

If that's the case you would need behaviours feature here too. You can make the custom field required when only creating the issue but you still need another plugin like JSU. 

You can unlock the field but it is not recommended to tamper with the database. Just so you know here is the link how to do that:
