I tried to add validation for a custom field upon transition. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the expected custom field on the choose field. I tried on different transition too but no luck.
I suspect you are trying a simple field validator - these only work with system fields
Simple field validator? Not sure
Upon clicking on the transition button in the workflow edit page, you can see add validation option. I have been using this option for years to add validation to both system and custom fields. However, it is not working now.
I can see both system and custom fields in the drop down but those fields are limited.
Even if I type the custom field name, I'm not able to see it on the drop down suggestion list.
Do you see any fields in the dropdown?
For many Jira pickers only a limited number are shown at first. For others you will need to start typing the field names so it can be filtered into the list.
I find the Atlassian search engine a bit odd. If you type a case exact name it will find the matches you want. If you type the same in lowercase the results include many result’s.
I wasn’t expecting you to see any custom fields after @Nic Brough -Adaptavist- ‘s comment on only working for system fields.
Have you tried ticking the ignore context option?
Although if a field context prevents it from being used in a project/issue type you will be an able to use it on an issue screen.
Having no indicator that there are more fields (having to type to find a field not listed) is completely not obvious. There has got to be a better way to represent this.. like a "..." at the bottom of the list? I was banging my head against my monitor trying to figure out why my field wasn't listed. It showed up when I typed the name in. I was getting very frustrated. Poor monitor...
