Make attachment mandatory at issue creation Edited

Hello Atlassian heroes,

I would like to make attachments mandatory (under condition) at issue creation (Customer portal).

Here is my scenario : IF customfield1 = value1 AND customfield2 = value2 THEN attachment is mandatory.

To achieve this, I did create a "Simple Scripted Validator" at Create transition.

Here is my script :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def attachmentManager = ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager()
def hasAttachments = attachmentManager.getAttachments(issue).size() >= 1

if (cfValues['customfield1']?.value == "value1" && cfValues['customfield2']?.value == "value2" && !hasAttachments){
return false
} else {
return true

 I did also try this :

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.AttachmentManager;

def attachments = issue.getAttachments();

if (cfValues['customfield1']?.value == "value1" && cfValues['customfield2']?.value == "value2" && attachments.size() >= 1){
return false
} else {
return true

 But I got this kind of error :


Can you please help me achieve this ?

I think you can find the answer in this post.

You may need to modify the code slightly to add the condition to require the attachments only when your custom field(s) are in the specified state.

Thanks a lot !!!

Here is the code that worked for me :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.attachment.FileSystemAttachmentDirectoryAccessor
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def attachmentDirectoryAccessor = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(FileSystemAttachmentDirectoryAccessor)
def temporaryAttachmentDirectory = attachmentDirectoryAccessor.getTemporaryAttachmentDirectory()

def mIssue = issue as MutableIssue

def attachmentNames = mIssue.getModifiedFields().get(IssueFieldConstants.ATTACHMENT)?.newValue

if(!attachmentNames) {
invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("You must add an attachment")

Credit goes to @Mark Markov and Ryot for working out the code.
