Making a custom field mandatory based on the value of a fix version

My fix version values are 2019-ABC, 2019-DEF and 2019-XYZ.

I want a custom field called "Release Date" to be mandatory when some selects fix verson as "2019-XYZ". 

Can someone help me with this using Script Runner?

Hi @Sunil Mandalika ,

With the help of Behaviours From ScriptRunner for Jira you will be able to configure this.

Hi @Sunil Mandalika 

Here is the code for you.

def fixVersion = getFieldById(getFieldChanged()).getValue()
def releaseDate = getFieldByName("Release Date")
log.debug("Fix Version: " + fixVersion)

if (fixVersion.toString().contains("2019-XYZ") ) {


} else {


Use this code in the behaviour. Create a behaviour, define mapping to a project, add the Fix Version/s field and use the above code in the server-side script.

I hope it helps.
