[Behaviours, groovy] Making custom field mandatory, when one of the values in checkbox is selected

Hello,

As in the topic, I am trying to make custom field "FIELD" mandatory, when one of checkbox values is checked. There is one choice, for example: checkbox name: "Find C", values: [A, B, C, D, E, F]; When "C" is selected, "FIELD" becomes mandatory.

I think, I've got a problem with reffering to "C" value.

My code:

def wartosc = getFieldByName("Find C")
def sir = getFieldByName("FIELD")
//def wybor = getFieldByName("C")

if(wartosc.getValue() == "C"){
 sir.setRequired(true)
 }

Might anyone tell me, how can I resolve it? Please, help

Hi Jan,

You have to setup two scripts, one for the "Find C" field and the other one for "FIELD".

"Find C" script is :

FormField wartosc = getFieldByName("Find C")
FormField sir = getFieldByName("FIELD")
//def wybor = getFieldByName("C")
 
if(wartosc.getValue() == "C"){
   if(sir.getValue() == null || sir.getValue().equals(""))
     sir.setError("Mandatory Field")
} 
else {
    sir.clearError()
}

"FIELD" script is :

FormField sir = getFieldByName("FIELD")
if(sir.getValue() != null && !sir.getValue().equals("")){
 sir.clearError()
}

Please, change Manadatory Field message at your convenience. I just tried this code and it works!

Fabio

Thank you Fabio for your answer.

If it really works, I wonder what am I doing wrong:

- my fields are Optional, not Required (btw I checked both possibilites)

- I chose the target project, issue type, workflow, fields and conditions (tranzition for my example)

- I added validation scripts with correct values

.. and still I can see no effect in my screen.

For a better understanding:

//"FIELD" script

FormField sir = getFieldByName("Nr paczki/SIR rewizja")
if(sir.getValue() != null && !sir.getValue().equals("")){
 sir.clearError()
 //sir.setRequired(true)
}

// "Find C" script
FormField wartosc = getFieldByName("Przyczyna powstania blędu")
FormField sir = getFieldByName("Nr paczki/SIR rewizja")
//def wybor = getFieldByName("C")
  
if(wartosc.getValue() == "błąd developmentu"){
   if(sir.getValue() == null || sir.getValue().equals(""))
     sir.setError("Nr paczki/SIR rewizja")
   //  sir.setRequired(true)
} 
else {
    sir.clearError()
   // sir.setRequired(false)
}

Regards,

Jan

Hi Jan,

you should add these scripts into your Behaviour associated with your project.

Please, install and setup this plugin https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.plugin.Behaviours

I tested my two scripts and they work fine.

Fabio

Now it works, thank you! :)
