When jira users log work for their tasks sometimes they miss to add worklog comment (work description). So, in order to omit this, I need to make the work description field mandatory. Basically whenever a user logs work, he/she should be asked to add work log comment as well. It would be a great support if I could get a solution on this :)
Normal flow that users follow to add worklog - Go to the relevant Jira ticket -> click on the three dotted icon at the top right corner of the screen -> log work -> then the log work screen appears (this screen is not a customized screen)
Field that needs to be mandatory
you can use an addon like "Tempo". Tempo adds a "Log Time" button and you can make work description mandatory in its setting.
also for some specific transitions in a workflow ypu can add a validator to check if the "work description" field is set.
as its not possible right now u can see here and vote for it: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-8751
