How to validate if a comment was entered in a transition screen using JIRA and Groovy Runner Plugin


we'd like to use the Groovy Runner plugin for Jira to validate if a user has entered a comment in a workflow transition screen.

Since this is part of a larger script, we have to stick to Groovy Runner and cannot use another plugin.

Any help how this can be done would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Jochen
