How to validate fields on any update?

Forgive me if I get any of this wrong but I'm new to Jira plugin development. The end goal is to check the value of certain fields against a remote service to verify that they are valid values.


It seems like I could use a validator however then these fields can only be changed on the transition page. The quick edit or edit actions would not trigger this validation.


I did find some Atlassian answers talking about extending the quick edit and issue-navigator-plugin, but those are all from 2013 / Jira 5 and I'd guess don't apply to Jira 7.


I could change all of the fields to custom fields, however that has it's own repurcusions that are not ideal.


Have I missed any other ways I could achieve this?

Nope, edit has nowhere to add validators natively.

You would still need to hack the code that provides the edit functionality.  Or, get something like ScriptRunner that provides "Behaviours"
