JIRA Workflow Validators for Story Points Field


I'm using the JIRA default workflow. I'm trying to configure the workflow in such a way that a user cannot move a story to the "in progress" state unless the "story points" field contains a value.

I've explored the built-in validator options with no luck...

How can I configure the workflow transition to acomplish this? Any help or direction is much appreaciated!

The JIRA Suite Utilities plugin has a "Fields required, mandatory, during transition" condition that you can use to achieve this. :)
