How to script a validator checking the Field input

Hi All,


We have a Server version of JIRA and JIRA Service Desk. We need to write a validator for a Field to check it's input - there should be comma-separated email-addresses. We have recently installed ScriptRunner. Is this the only tool for input validating?

There are other apps that provide validators, but because ScriptRunner lets you write code that hooks directly into the Jira API, none are quite as powerful as it is.

import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def cf = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(linkedIssues.first().destinationObject).findByName(<field name>)

if (issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) <your rule>

{ throw new InvalidInputException("customField", "The content of <field name> is not a comma-separated set of valid emails") }
