I wonder if it possible to make a field required when you choose certain components in Jira?
We have both server and and different mobile clients (iOS/Android/Blackberry e.g.) components in our Jira project.
If the submitter of a issue pick a mobile client as component it would be nice to make fields like phone model and mobile OS version required.
Is this possible? Or does anyone have another smart solution for this scenario?
Yes this is possible using workflow validator. It should take Components value, based on that you write a message under the required fields on screen.
You can learn workflow validator using the workflow module and http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2010/08/workflow-validator.html
Off-the-shelf, no. Schemes are all hung off the project and issue type, so you can't have different field configurations by component. It would be messy if you could too - the code would have to dynamically change field settings on-screen part way through a create or edit screen, and you immediately run into a massive problem in that you don't know which scheme to use when the user selects more than one component.
