Require Epic for new tasks - problem with sub-tasks

Hello,

I have added a new Validator for Create transition of workflow - Require Fields, Epic Link. This works fine, and prevents creating a new issue without an epic.

However, when I go to create a sub-task, initial window says that sub-task cannot be assigned to an epic, and if I try to create it I get a message saying that Epic link is required.

How do I solve this?

 

Thanks.

Either

Add code to the validator to say "return true when run on a sub-task type"

or

Use a different workflow for subtasks, one without the validator on it

 

Well, the workflow is quite complex, so maintaining two copies of it just for subtasks is not an option.

How do I go about "adding code to validator"?
