Custom Field validation

I am trying to validate a custom field using a groovy script .

if(subpayrate < billrate)


log.warn("Submission Pay Rate is less than billrate");

invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("fixVersions", "Fix Version/s is required when specifying Resolution of \"Fixed\"")


I have initialized the invalidInputException but the transition is not failing.
How do you fail the transition on field validation failure

1 answer

do you just initialize the Exception, or do you also throw it?

I'm personaly not quite familiar with Groovy, but in Java an exception would also have to be thrown:

throw new InvalidInputException("Something went wrong");

Also, where exactly do you execute your code? Inside a Validator class?
