Custom field validation based on issue type

Ivan Tovbin Community Champion Jul 31, 2017

Hello everyone!

I need to configure a workflow transition in such a way that if issue type is set to A then a custom field would be validated during a transition and if issue type is NOT set to A then no validation pops up. 

So far i've managed to solve this by creating two separate transitions with their conditions set up in such a way that they would only be shown to users if Issue type has a corresponding value.

But i wonder if this could be configured within a single transition.

Thank you!

You will need a plugin to implement it in a single transition, it's pretty straightforward.

Within in a single transition you can achieve this functionality using following plugins - you can use Script runner plugin or Automation plugin or JMWE plugin for achieving
