How to validate all checkboxes are checked using groovy expresion

I'm looking to make sure all 4 checkboxes are selected before an issue is transitioned. I edit the workflow select the transition and add a "Scripted (Groovy) Validator"

cfValues['Manager Acknowledgements'][0].getValue() == 'Value 1 '

cfValues['Manager Acknowledgements'][1].getValue() == 'value 2'

cfValues['Manager Acknowledgements'][2].getValue() == 'value 3'

cfValues['Manager Acknowledgements'][3].getValue() == 'value 4'


However I am getting an error: 

An unknown exception occured executing Validator com.atlassian.jira.workflow.SkippableValidator@3a3029a7: root cause: No such property: cfValues for class: Script1

Do I need to import a library? - JIRA has recognized cfValues for me in script runner previously is there another recognized variable I can use for custom fields?

You can only use cfValues in the "Simple Scripted Validator". I guess you are not using that. 

It doesn't seem like the best way anyway, you need to keep the strings in sync. Here is a custom validator that checks that all possible options are checked:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def fieldConfigSchemeManager = ComponentAccessor.getFieldConfigSchemeManager()

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Checkboxes") // modify name of checkboxes field
def config = fieldConfigSchemeManager.getRelevantConfig(issue, cf)
def allOptions = optionsManager.getOptions(config)

if (issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf) != allOptions) {
    throw new InvalidInputException(cf.id, "Check all boxes")
}

Hi @Jamie Echlin [Adaptavist] 

This worked. Thanks !

Hi Niamh,

What are the steps you took to fix the script? We need a similar solution...

Did not the script in my answer work?
