How do I enforce a minimum length of value for a text filed when creating issues?

How do I enforce a minimum length of value for a text filed when creating issues?

For example I use a text filed to record repeat steps for issues but I want to enforce reportor that he/she should provide enough information in it.

you mean the field should't be empty? if yes then use field required validator which is in JSU plugin

https://jsutil.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JSUTIL/JIRA+Suite+Utilities+Workflow+Validators

if you wan to force the user to specic value then you need to develop your own validator

using Regex Validator from the following plugin

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/ru.andreymarkelov.atlas.plugins.utils

You can add a condition on transition that checks the length of a field. There are some plugins out there for conditions based on regular expressions (JJupin with SIL scripting, JIRA Workflow Toolbox and more).

Check the market place:
