Force Users to add Issue Link When Resolving as Duplicate

What is the best way to force users to add issue link when resolving as duplicate?

Tricky. I have something that sort of does this:

  1. Create a workflow transition used only for resolving duplicates or other resolutions that require an issue link
  2. Edit that transition to add a Field is Required validator, and put Linked Issue as required

It's not fool-proof, as you can't be certain that the issue link is Duplicate, and it requires a custom transition. It's better than nothing though, and I don't know any other out-of-the-box solution for that.

The Scriptrunner plugin would allow you to script your own validator.,Validators,Post-Functions


This does solution not work because "Linked Issue" is not a field that can be manipulated with Validators out of the box. When selecting the Field is Required Validator, the Linked Issue field does not show up in the list.
