If you change due date you must add a comment

Is it possible to make it compulsory to add a comment to an issue if the due date is edited?


1 answer

Well a possible solution would be: 

1. remove the due date from the edit screen.

2. Add a global transition using a screen with duedate and add to that transition a comment required validator.

so if someone wants to change the duedate he needs to use that transition where he has to add acomment.

But then how would you go back in the workflow to the relevant status it was in before you edited the due date?

No, I meant a global transition which is going back to original status (Open to Open and Closed to Closed etc.)

I know how to make create a global transition so all issues can go to that status but not sure how you get it to go back to where it was before?

It's been a while that I've done this (it was under 5.2), I need to check how I did it. But I can verify this earliest on Monday.

Thanks that would be great!

I just tried to do this via global transition, but I've found no way to get this done as I decribed. Sorry for that. The only way is to use separate transitions for each status (where the duedate could be changed "In Progress" > "In Progress", etc. ). The different transitions (different IDs) however could have the same name (e.g. Change Due Date). So it would be depending on the number of statuses in your workflow more work to do than I originally expected.
