Add a Validator on a transition screen for originalEstimate?

Having some problems validating originalEstimate field in a workflow transition screen. 

Using a Validation based on JQL query, which, I believe is provided by the script runner plugin.

The query is simple: "originalEstimate is not EMPTY"


Anybody created validator on a transition screen to require the entry of an Original Estimate?

This won't work if you're trying to do what I think you are, because the issue won't be indexed with the new value until it's committed.

Instead change to a "simple scripted validator", and use the condition:


Which is short for 

issue.getOriginalEstimate() != null && issue.getOriginalEstimate() != 0

Jamie, Thank you so much :-) I hadn't thought about the indexing!
