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

Hi there

There is a similar question regarding on this posted before, perhaps you can refer on this as a general guideline and reference :

Hope it helps :)


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

Hi Where do I have to write that code?

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

I tried it in a workflow transition validator (using the option 'Simple scripted validator') and it does not seem to work.

I read in another post that since Jira 5.x, the values are returned as a map, so they suggested this check:

   cfValues.get("customfield_17637")?.keySet()?.size() == 2

but it does not work for me (meaning when I put a not-None value, it still fails).


I use this Script 

"cfValues['Department and Service']?.values()*.value.size() == 2"

and meet this Error. Please hepl
