Hello, I am looking for a way to require a Comment whenever an issue is assigned. I have seen a workaround by turning off the "Global Assign" functionality and then creating new transitions that include a required field but hoping there is an easier/quicker solution that does not involve Global Settings in JIRA 5.2 or 6?
Thanks in advance for any help
What you're doing is right. All you need to do is get the "Field Required" validator (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.googlecode.jira-suite-utilities). If i'm not mistaken, it does that. If not, try this (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.innovalog.jmwe.jira-misc-workflow-extensions).
Thanks Timothy and Udo!
Thank you for the nudge in the right direction regarding JiraSuiteUtilities...however it seems I can look for null at any field except "comment". I wil try to socialize changing the field to something else that I can modify and make this viable to make mandatory for each assign operation.
Not sure what to do with: jira.permission.assign = denied (for details see here)
It seems that this would disable comments from being shown/made and then allow me to insert my new field with the above workaround...?
