We have 1 workflow which is associated with multiple projects.

For specific projects I need to make Original Estimate is mandatory if issue moved to "In Progress" state from any other state.

Hi @Ronak ,

There are 2 options.

  1. You can clone the current workflow, set "Field Required Validator" in the cloned workflow. Use this new workflow only for the specific project.
  2. You can install marketplace app that adds advanced validation features. With them you can use a simple expression language(Jira expressions) similar to below.
    project.key=='PBI' && ! issue.originalEstimate

Hello @Bloompeak Support , 

Thanks for prompt reply.
I agree with that and I know that solution already tired.

I am looking if it can be done via script (example below) because I have already 200+ workflows are in place. I tried with changing scripts but still it didn't help me. So probably I doubting script needs to be accurate to execute this.

if(project.key == ""){

if(originalestimate != null){

return false;}else {return true;}

}else{return true;}



Like mohammad shafiei likes this

I have created script base I have provided in my previous reply.

if(project.key == ""){

if(originalestimate != null){

return false;}else {return true;}

}else{return true;}

I am happy that you solved it.
You might simplify the script as below

return (project.key != "" || originalestimate == null)

kinldy, could plz tell us where can i put this script ?
