Make a field required in a certain status?

Hi everyone,
Is it possible to make a certain field required in a certain status?

For example I want to use Jira workflow for invoice management but once it hits Invoice Sent status it must have the field Original Invoice ID as requirement.

Also is it possible to hide certain fields when they are in certain statuses?

Hi Abraham,

I would use the transitions of the workflow for this.

When you configure a transition you can configure Validators. One of the validators available is "Field Required Validator". If the field that you select here is not set the validator will prevent the transition.

I think there is no way to define screens by status but you can enforce this by defining screens per transitions so when transitioning from one status to another you only show the information you want.


I hope this is helpful.



Thanks will look into it, get back if I have questions.
