Behaviours plugin - make Original Estimate field required

I'd like to make Original Estimate field required by using Behaviours plugin. What's the proper way to address the Original Estimate field?

My code:

FormField fcompl = getFieldById(fieldChanged)
// FormField foest = getFieldByName("Original Estimate")
FormField foest = getFieldByName("Time Tracking")
String vcompl = (String) fcompl.getFormValue()
if (vcompl == "16340") {
        fcompl.setHelpText("Field Original Estimate is required.")
       foest.setHelpText("Not required.")
       fcompl.setHelpText("Field Original Estimate is not required.")

IIRC it's getFieldById("timetracking")

Thanks for tip. I changed the approach by searching id. It's getFieldById("timetracking_originalestimate").

time tracking stuff is not supported well in behaviours at the moment...

  • For Original Estimate, use getFieldById("timetracking_originalestimate")
  • For Remaining Estimate, use getFieldById("timetracking_remainingestimate")
