Multi checkbox validation

Hi,

I want to create an expression to validate a multicheckbox in a workflow screen.

I'm able to to do an OR but I'm not succeeding in creating AND

ex. (This box is checked|This is box2 is checked)... How do I do AND ?

This isn't possible through the base functionality. It requires the use of a plugin. The best one I know of for this purpose if the Scriptrunner plugin. 

Basically resolving this would require building a custom validation script using their plugin functionality. 

I'm not that familiar with the scripting itself, but here are some resources that might help.

https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/5.2.1/jira/recipes/workflow/validators/simple-scripted-validators.html#_validating_a_multi_select_option_is_selected

In particular, I think you will want to add a validator script with the following: cfValues['My Multi Select']*.value.contains("Some value")

This will need to be modified to fit your needs.

Ok, is that possible to use in the Cloud version? 

I see it is available for Cloud. Thank you Kian

Just a comment if anyone follows this, I did not succeed in using  scriptrunner cloud version for this. Examples I found were all for server version. Only solution I find is to split the multi checkboxes to single checkboxes and add validator to them one by one

Sorry, I didn't realize you were using cloud!
