Mark the due date field as required: behaviour plugin

Hi guys,

I have created a behaviour using behaviour plugin.
When I edit issue priority to major, I want to mark the due date field as required.

The following image is my configuration, but it doesn't work.

This is my validation script

def priorityField = getFieldById("priority")
def dueDateField = getFieldById("duedate")
def priority = priorityField.getValue()
if(priority == "Major")
{
  dueDateField.setRequired(true)
}

Do you have any idea? Thanks.

I think Priority field will return integer value and try with code something like follows, 

getFieldById("duedate").setRequired(getFieldByName("priority").getValue() as Integer == 1)

Rambanam is right. Getting the priority field will return a string with an integer value in it.

Also, props for using the boolean syntax of setRequired to its full effect. I might have put the contents in a variable, like:

def priorityValue = getFieldByName("priority").getValue() as Integer
getFieldById("duedate").setRequired(priorityValue == 1)

or maybe just

def isMajor = getFieldByName("priority").getValue() == "1"
getFieldById("duedate").setRequired(isMajor)

It's clearly too close to the holidays if I'm quibbling about style. smile

Thank you very much. Yes, the priority field will return a string (it's id value).

The code snippet that worked for me:

import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.PRIORITY
def isMajor = getFieldById(PRIORITY).getValue() == "1"
getFieldById("duedate").setRequired(isMajor)

Thank you guys.
