Setting "Time Tracking" validation on Start Progress


I want to validate Time Tracking values (e.g. Original Estimate, Remaining Estimate) while clicking on Start Progress. If the estimate values are not given by developers before, it'll ask for those values and then go for Start Progress. I don't want to do it setting Time Tracking as Required field because during Create Issue it has to allow blank Time Tracking value. So my target is to set it later when one developer clicks on Start Progress.

How about using a screen which has the time tracking field for Start Progress and also add a validator which checks remaining estimate != null (I am guessing that it is available)

Thanks Renjith that helped !!!

Hi Renjith, Testing your suggestion we are running into an issue. When user havent entered Original Estimate and logs his work, Remaining Estimate is getting updated as 0m, so in this case, workflow validator is considering Remaining Estimate is having some value in it and allowing users are change issue status. Thanks
