Link an issue field as mandatory

In my workflow, i have a workflow step of "Close as duplicate"

I want the person responsible for closing the ticket as "Close as duplicate", must enter the link an issue field to identify it duplicates which issue.

Is it possible to deal with this issue in the workflow?

Hi Ananda,

You could make the issue field required using a workflow validator. The JIRA Suite Utilities plugin has this kind of validator : https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.googlecode.jira-suite-utilities

Hi Peter,

i already tried that before as you can see the list does not display the linked field as an option.

Ok, I couldn't test it so I didn't know.

Maybe you can take a look at the Script Runner plugin and the following thread :

You can find the Script Runner plugin here :
