How to make a field required if another field is filled in


I want to make "Tester" (a custom field which is a name picker) required but only if another custom field ("Testing Required?") is checkboxed to "Yes".    Is this possible?   Looking over the old questions I see this was asked in 2012 and was hoping for a better answer today than "No" smile

Hey James! I'd recommend checking out the "JIRA Workflow Toolbox" Plugin. They've got some great conditions and validators you can add to workflows! Check them out here.

Sadly, still not out of the box. It's been said a thousand times but plugins are the way to go. 

JIRA Behaviour plugin is a good one IF you are on an older version of JIRA (prior to 7.0) you can download it free. If on a later JIRA version, then it has been merged with Script Runner and is no longer free. Kinda pricey @ $8000 but totally worth it.

JJUPIN is another one I really like, not quite a powerful but still pretty robust at the much smaller price of $400.

I have both on my instance and really like them but I find JJupin more simple to use at times. 

I haven't used the Workflow Toolbox that Kian suggested but it looks pretty cool and comes in at $750. 

Good luck.
