Many exceptions in the same Groovy script validator

Hello,

I am trying to improve my User Experience by grouping all validators in one unique validator to display only 1 error message during transition. 

Let say I want to check that: 

- the field Assignee is not empty

- time has been logged if no time was logged on the issue before

Until now, I was using 2 validators: Fields required and Script Validator. But 2 error messages

I am now using 1 Scipt validator to check Assignee AND time spent. I would like my error message to appear on the field on not above the transition screen.

Is it possible to have several exceptions displayed on many fields? How to do it? 

Thank you for your help

Romain

Hey!
Just to share with the Community, we found the solution. You can create your exception and then add errors one by one on the fields you want. They will be displayed under each field and not on front of the transition screen.

invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException()
invalidInputException.addError("worklog_timeLogged",error_time_spent)
invalidInputException.addError(ef.id,error_estimated_effort)
