How to create validator for non-empty field

There is a validator saying that a given field must be changed, but I just want to ensure it's not empty.

Use the "Fields Required" validator. 

It does exactly that

If it's empty, it won't accept it. 


But if it is already filled in, the validator will display an error. The field is "Build Name". When someone does a build for this issue, they might manually enter the build name. When the change the status, a screen will pop up asking for the build name & it's already filled in, so the user can simply accept it. However, the validator will note that the value has not changed and will display an error. So I just need something to ensure the field as SOME value, but not necessarily a changed value

If script runner is installed on your instance, you can choose a script validator -> simple script validator, and something like : cfValues['SomeCustomField'] != "" So that field can't be empty but will accept anything else.
