I was looking for a method to make Epic Link field required for some issue types, I couldn't do it on the field configuration because it is locked.
I found this documentation on Jira Software Support: ( How to make Epic Link required on JIRA Software ).
It worked perfectly but now when I want to create a sub-task it says ( A subtask cannot be assigned to an epic ) and doesn't allow me to create because the field is required.
Is there any solution? knowing that i need to make Epic Link required on one issue type only.
Hi @Muhammad Alchoum ,
welcome to the Atlassian Community!
I believe you need to use workflow scheme with two workflows. The first one for Sub-task issue type, where this validator is not used, and the second one for the other issue types, where this validator is used. Now you are probably using the same workflow for all issue types.
