Optional field into required in a workflow

Deleted user Nov 14, 2017

Hi Community.

 

How can I change an optonal field into a required field in a workflow.

For example if an issue is set on "in work", an optional field should be set on required.

 

Thank you very much for answering my question.

Hello, 

You need to add a validator to the transitions which going out from the status "in work". You can read more here

If I have understood your question correctly, You will need to add a field required validator on the transition which takes the issue to "in work".  This is provided by a free add-on JIRA suite utilities which I believe is a must have add-on for every JIRA instance (Probably you are already using it)

Refer the below KB ,
