Make a field mandatory based on another field

Hello need help please
I have to make the system field due date mandatory only if the custom field delivery date desired is filled. Here is my script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

def desired_delivery_date = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_12303")
def issueObject = issue
def duedate = issueObject.getDueDate()

if ( desired_delivery_date != null){


When I execute this script I get this error : 

groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.ImmutableCustomField.setRequired() is applicable for argument types: (Boolean) values: [false] at


Thanks for your help

Hi @Alice  Are you trying to make due date mandatory using Sripted Validator or using ScriptRunner Behaviour ?


Hi @Alice  Apply Below Script in ScriptRunner >> Behaviours > in delivery date desired field server side script to make due date mandatory when delivery date desired is not empty.


import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import groovy.transform.BaseScript
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import java.sql.Timestamp

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours

def formfield = getFieldById("customfield_35350")
def duedate = getFieldById("duedate")

def releaseDate = formfield.value as Date

if (releaseDate){
} else if (!releaseDate) {

 Kindly replace field id 35350 with your custom field id.

Hi @Alice , do you have the add-on JMWE or Script Runner ?


If you have JMWE, you can use validators with the required field based on condition. :)

Hi @Carlos Faddul 

I am using Scriptrunner Behaviours. 

I believe the @Vikrant Yadav  resolved the problem already :)
