How to disable a Jira validator Edited

*I am new to JIRA coding -  been a regular user for long and an admin for a short while *

I am in a DEV env writing scripted valdiators for different requirements - is there a way for me temporarily disable a validator without deleting it  completely or changing the code to always return true ? 

Certainly this is a valid (pun!) scenario when still in testing phase ? I am adding new validators and to test it would be easier if I could ignore other errors for now.

Yes you can make the code always return true. Just insert into the first line of the code the following line:
return true

Thats what I DIDN'T want to do don't want to touch other people's code.

You could copy the current workflow and make changes to the current one.  If you want to restore the old configuration just attach the copy workflow to the issue type. There would be some work to do but you would be sure that you have everything back.
