How to check if a custom field contains data prior to allowing transition?

Hey there,

I'm trying to figure out how check if there's any data in a specific custom field prior to allowing a transition from In Progress to Done.

I chose the correct transition and clicked Validators and am now looking for the right option. I have scriptrunner and was hoping it would allow a JQL based validator but no dice there. If I'm stuck using jira expressions what is the one to check if it contains data and/or is not empty? It's custom field 10102 if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to point me in a direction :) I checked this forum as well as google and youtube but alas.

What is the type of the custom field?

possible options could be field is not empty or field is not null

It was a text field, sorry I didn't state that initially.

Looks like issue.customfield_10102.length > 0 within a validator gets me what the experience I want. If anyone knows how to do this in JQL instead that would be amazing.

It looks like maybe this works as a Condition instead of a validator, but not sure it will do what I want?

issue.customfield_10102.length > 0
