Hi I'm trying to write a "Linked Issues Status Validator" validation rule that only runs against a sub-task if a custom field on the sub-task is set to a specific value. Otherwise don't run the validation.
Is this possible with a linked issue validation rule?
Unfortunately, you can't do that with the Linked Issue Status Validator. You'll need to use the Linked Issues Validator instead, and test both the linkedIssue status and custom field in the Jira expression. Something like:
linkedIssue.customfield_12345.value != "An option value" || ["Status 1","Status 2"].includes(linkedIssue.status.name)
where customfield_12345 is the field ID of the custom field (assuming it's a single-select type field - otherwise, use the "Issue Fields" help tab to find out how to test your specific custom field) and "Status 1", "Status 2" the two statuses you want the sub-tasks to be in.
