My custom field select list contains NONE. Can I make any other value mandatory?

Hi,

My custom field select list defaults to NONE. The field is mandatory but having the default value means that the field aleways has a value - thus rendering its being mandatory useless.

I want something special: if the user keeps it set to NONE then this would fail the validation.

Is this possible?

Cheers,

Andy

You can get the value of custom field in the create transition validation phase and if the value is none then fail the validation.

Thanks mate I'll try that!

EDIT: the only validation that would work here is the Regular Expression Check but that doesn't appear to work for select lists, only free text fields.

:(

Do you have script runner installed?
