I need to make the Comments field mandatory on a transition, so that a new comment needs to be added when transitioning an issue.
I've created a screen that contains the Comment field, added the screen on the transition, and using Validator I've set Comment as required field.
However, now, when I want to use that transition, I get the screen, I add a comment, but when I want to transition, I get the following message: Comment is required. But it is not present on screen.

Any suggestions please?
It may be because the comment field is dynamically added to all transition screens by JIRA so the validator is looking at the stored screen definition and doesn't see the comment field on it. When I want a comment for a specific transition I create a text field for that transition and make it required. That also makes it easy to find the comment related to the transition. I don't recommend making a comment required on all transitions; you'll just upset your users.
Hi @Joe Pitt,
Sadly that doesn't exactly do.
Using the new field approach makes it so that if I need to re-transition the issue (say from code review back to in progress), the previous comment is still there in the text box, and anyone is able to delete it. This makes traceability a pain.
If they delete it that will appear in the history. However, you'd have to clear it if you need to 'go back' otherwise it will be there and it won't force them to add a NEW comment.
