Validator to compare Employee ID from previous issues


We have employee ID custom field in our project. We want each employee to have one ticket in the project. We want to have a validator to check the employee ID from all previous tickets/issues and display an error - "A ticket already exists with same employee ID". Could you please guide to create a validator that satisfies this requirement. We have JMWE and JSU plugins that we can make use of to create validators.

Hi @Sadath Ali Syed ,

you can use a "Related Issues Validator" from JMWE:


However, this assumes the "employee ID" custom field is a Number custom field. If it's a text field, you'll need to adjust the JQL expression to something like:

"employee ID" ~ "${issue.get("employee ID")}"

Thanks a million @David Fischer _Appfire_ for providing solution.
