If anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.
I have a simple custom field (a radio set) which is "required" when closing an issue.
Any chance I could include it on the "create" screen - but - in that case, making it optional?
Hi, Clarissa, Is it possible to make a comment and a work log item mandatory? As far as I know, these are not fields, but rather lists that contain many items. I thought of a custom screen and selecting it for transition, but I could not find any information whether I could use custom screens (the ones created from velocity templates and Java code) in transitions. Then I thought about two custom fields, one for comment, another for log time. I could populate them on transition screen, require them in custom Validator, copy to comments and work log accordingly in custom post function and clearing them in another post function. What do you recommend?
You can't. The way you handle this is you put the field on a screen used in the transition to close and require it there with the jira-suite utilities or other plugin. If you only want it updated there I would only put it on the view screen besides the transition screen. If you haven't installed the jira-suiite utilities plugin I strongly suggest you do. It is very helpful.
You can refer to this page https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-make-jira-applications-fields-required-in-a-workflow-transition-691011903.html to give the workaround or resolution a try.
