I put validators for certain fields during some transitions in my JIRA workflow.
Those fields are mandatory only on the resolve screen.
It works well however users are frustrated that there is no red star indicating it is mandatory on those screens.
Is there any way to make the star show up on those screens?
Yes you can! But maybe you gonna have a bad time implementing this feature. The only way that a figured out is using Behavior add-on. You can use something like:
getFieldById("customfield_10301").setRequired(true) //will make this CF mandatory with stars
If you need some help to use behavior please check this link: https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JBHV/JIRA%20Behaviours%20Plugin
Can you tell me which JIRA version you are using? Because I get errors when trying to use validators. (see https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/11962955/simple-scripted-validator-not-showing-defined-error-message-when-condition-is-not-met)
