Have a "validator" on the filed "Request Type"

Hi Atlassian community

I'm having an issue with the field Request Type.

In our Jira Service Management we use several workflow, issue type and request type.

Sometimes, customers don't use the right request type so we (agent) have to move the ticket to another issue type. This operation can erase the request type because we are using a different issue type . So we have to manually affect a new request type. That's okay but sometimes we forget to reaffect the request type and that's a problem for the reporting at the end.

So, i tried to add a validator to my workflow to make Request Type required to sold the isssue.

Test 1 : From Jira (not from customer portal) i  create an issue with no request type, the validator is blocking the transition--> Fine.

Test 2 :  create an issue from the customer portal -> a request type is affected. Then i move the issue to another issue type -> the request type is now blank. I do the transition : the validator didn't stop me.

I think in back office the request type field has a value (the one from the creation) so the validor doesn't stop the transition. But in front office Jira doesn't show me the value because it's not a value affected to the current issue type. I wish that validator stop the transition and the agent apply a correct value to the request type field.

Someone have a tips for me ? :)


Kind Regards

A couple of questions for you:

  • Are you sure that you have the validator on each of the workflows and the specific transitions that you’re actually exercising?
  • What specific validator are you using? It may be but that validator is actually passing. Are you using set the field must be updated? I think that would be the proper validator.

Hi Jack, thank you for your answer.

  • i had the validor on only one workflows and transition but i'm sure that i made my test on it ;)
  • i use the validator "Field Required Validator Field  / must not be empty during the transition."

You advice me to use the validator "Field has been modified Validator" ? I'll test it
