Can you add validation to the 'Edit Issue' option???

You have workflow validators,post fuctions but they are only limited to the workflow.Is there a way to add validation to the 'Edit' option which is independent of the workflow???

I found two options in doing this, one is by using plugin and another is by doing some modifications to JIRA. Please check on the following links:

Thanks Zulfadli Noor Sazali !!

<web-item key="edit-issue" i18n-name-key="" name="Edit this issue" section="operations-top-level" weight="1">

<label key="common.words.edit"/>

<tooltip key=""/>


<link linkId="edit-issue">



<condition class="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webfragment.conditions.IsIssueEditableCondition"/>

<condition class="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.webfragment.conditions.HasIssuePermissionCondition">

<param name="permission">edit</param>


<param name="iconClass" value="butt-edit"/>


.......this is the web item for 'Edit' can i add new conditions to it???(by extending the available classes...i suppose)....or its not possible???
