Field required depending on other field value

Hey there,

I have a short question:
is it possible to configure a create transition to set a custom field (text) required if the priority is a specific value Blocker, critical f.e..
But when the priority is "lower" the custom field is optional.

Has anybody an idea to solve this ?  

Thanks in advice

Hi Simon


Using JIRA Workflow Toolbox is very very easy to do this incluiding a post-function in the action "Create" in your flow. Do you have this plugin installed?





Hey Begoña, thanks for the quick reply. I have a trial for this plugin but really don't get the post-function out of this - which one exactly do you mean?

I don't want to set a field value I want to make the field required or optional depending on another fields value.

If the original field containing the value can be single select dropdown check out the Dynamic Forms add-on. It's perfect for this scenario. It's in the marketplace I would include the link but I am on my phone and it's a pain to do that :-)

Sorry Simon, I misunderstood your question.


For doing that you can use Behaviour plugin. It has availables this methods:



yup this is pretty easy with jjupin

Hey thanks for the reply. My problem is that I'm bad at scripting I have no idea about it - that's why I asked for a configuration way for this issue of mine.
