Can you make fix versions a required field at a certain point in your work flow?

We are looking to have fix versions an optional field in the initial stages of our workflow, in the later stages when it passes "PO review" to "Complete" we would like the fix versions field to become mandatory. Is this possible?

Hi @Helen Clements ,


Welcome to Atlassian Community !

In target transition , you can configure Field required Validator and select Fix versions as field required.

Please find below screenshot for your reference.Val 2.pngval 1.pngThanks,

Hi @Helen Clements  ,

To configure this you need to have jira administrator permission for configuring workflow validators.

Please refer below document on how to add validator to workflow transition.
