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

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

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:
