How do I make the second field of a cascading select field required?

If a cascading select field is set to required, only the first selection field is actually required. The second field can be left unselected. How do I make both fields required? I found this:

cfValues["myCascadingSelect"]?.getKeysAndValues()?.size() == 2

but have been unsuccessful in getting it to work as a validation on the create transition.
We are running JIRA v5.2.5

cfValues['your cascading field']?.values()*.value.size() == 2
This one is working for me.

You need to install script runner plugin firstly, Then use Script Validator to add the code
