Is it possible to make one field a required field based on another field's value?

We need to make a field a required field based on the value of another field. Is this possible?

For example:

If the "Deployment Type" field is set to "Production", then the user is required to enter a value into another field.

If the "Deployment Type" field is set to anything other than "Production", then the other field is not required to have any data.

I looked at the Validators in the workflow, but could not see anything that might work for this validation scenario.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Terry

Not in OnDemand, I guess. A similar question for standalone Jira was answered by Jobin/Mizan here.

You might have this a try by writing the javascript validation in description of that perticular custome field

field. Require little Javascript knowledge.
