It depends on when the first one is filled out. Since you're in the cloud you don't have access to scripting. If the field is saved BEFORE you want to test for it you can do it with a validator from the JIRA suite utilities. You can setup 2 transitions that test for the field. If it is full allow transition 1 and use the JIRA suite utilities to make the field required in the transition (make sure it is on the transition screen). Transition 2 would be allowed if the field is empty and wouldn't require the field. The user will only see one of the transitions depending on the status of the checked field.
