Script Runner - Validating two fields using Simple Scripted Validator


Trying to validate two custom fields (select list and text line - multi) but can't get it to work and does not seem to validate properly.  It either parses the first condition or not at all.

The goal of the validation is to display an error message if user selects 'Yes' but leaves the comment field blank/null.

I've tried different variations of this condition and switched the conditions around but to no avail.  

cfValues['Select List'].value.contains('Yes') && cfValues['Text Line']?.value == null




if (cfValues['Select List'].value.contains('Yes'))
        cfValues['Text Line']?.value == null


if (cfValues['Select List'].value.contains('Yes'))
        cfValues['Text Line']?.value == null


cfValues['Select List'] == 'Yes' && cfValues['Text Line'].value == null

and others.

I've also added the following before the condition to check the logs to see if the values of the custom fields are as expected and they are...

log.warn (cfValues['Select List'])
log.warn (cfValues['Text Line'])

Appreciate any help!

cfValues['Select List'].value != 'Yes' || cfValues['Text Line']

should work if it really is a single select and a text field.

What if it's a multi select and a text field? what would the condition be then?

'Yes' in cfValues['Select List']*.value || cfValues['Text Line']

!('Yes' in cfValues['Select List']*.value) || cfValues['Text Line']

Is there an "OR" parameter to this? i.e. The value of the custom field should be A or B (instead of comparing to a single value) for the validation to be true.
