How can I use a simple scripted validator to check whether a comment has been included in the transition?

I want to have a simple scripted validator to determine that a comment has been set in the transition if a custom field has been set to a particular value.

I have other validators for the transition, so it's not a matter of choose any/all with built-in validators.

In the same transition, I have this validator:

!(cfValues['String Custom Field'].getValue().contains('Foo') && cfValues['Other Custom Field'] == null)

so what I want is something like

!(cfValues['String Custom Field'].getValue().contains('Bar') && comment expression != null)

So, my question is, what do I need for comment expression?

If you add the plugin's label the right people are more likely to see the question.

Untested, but to check for a comment this should work:

transientVars.get("comment")

so:

!(cfValues['String Custom Field'].getValue().contains('Bar') || transientVars.get("comment")

should require a comment when String Custom Field contains Bar.

 

Thank you for the quick answer and the advice about how to label future questions, much appreciated!

transientVars.get('comment')

worked perfectly.
