How do I prohibit issue creation(or change) with certain custom fields values?

Hi! I have jira 6.0.8.

How do I prohibit issue creation or change if customfield_1 has value "In development" and customfield_2 has value "None"? Any other combination of values is allowed - the issue can be created or changed.

Is it going to be a listener?

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

A listener is too late - any changes will have been committed already.

You can do it in validators in the workflow, but there's nothing to stop someone performing edits that you cannot validate like this. The best you can do is block edits completely with the "do not allow edit" property on the workflow steps you need to stop them at, and moving your edit down into the workflow.

Thanks a lot!

But anyways, what if I want to control edition? How do I catch the event when someone is trying to edit the issue?

using script runner validator you can achive this

simple script validation you can do as follows

cfValues['customfield name1']?.value == 'In development' && cfValues['customfield name12']

check here more about script runner plugin

rambanam prasad Thanks!

So, all I have to do is I have to put this:

cfValues['customfield name1']?.value == 'In development'&& cfValues['customfield name12']

in "Simple scripted validator" (Runs a simple embedded script to find out whether to allow the transition or not) of my transition?

yes and don't forgot to update custom field names :)
