I need all users to track the time they have spent on tasks but to ensure this, I need time tracking to become a mandatory selection when a user moves the status of a task.
Is this possible to do without needing a plug in?
You need to add "Validators" in your workflow step.
You will need to select 'Field Required Validator' and then select the appropriate field in the next screen.
Just to add some clarity, you can add time spent or sum of time spent as the field validator. If your goal is to ensure that users are booking time spent, I found that you need to use the sum of time spent for this to work properly. Using time spent failed the validation.
Jira uses the greek symbol to represent Sum instead of the word in the selector.
Hi @bbutler , thanks ! But the thing is I want to make time logging mandatory for everyone assigned this ticket. For example :
Step 1 : Dev A assigned the ticket
Step 2 : Dev A done with the ticket and assigning this ticket to Dev B
In that scenario, because Dev A logged some time spent, there is a value on sum of time spent now. So Dev B can just send ticket to Test team by updating the status of the ticket without any time logging.
Do you have a solution suggestion for this ?
Hi @Lenin Raj I have the same question. I've just added the Validator on transition, published the workflow and tested it. I managed to perform transition without logging time, and didn't receive an error message I've set up to pop up.
I am guessing that this is only possible for the custom Time Spent field, but we just deleted that and incorporated Time Tracking instead.
Is there any way to make Time Tracking (not custom Time Spent) mandatory?
