Simple Scripted Validator: Require Due Date Reason if Due Date Selected

I've been mucking around with a Simple Scripted Validator (using ScriptRunner) for a while now. I clearly don't know what I'm doing. This is what I'm trying to do:

I have a Due Date Reason custom multi-line text field. I'd like it to be required only if the Due Date field has a selected value.

I'm using JIRA 7.3.1 and Adaptavist ScriptRunner 5.0.4.

Try the following code (check the exact name of custom field)

if(issue.getDueDue()) {

  if(!cfValues['Due Date Reason'] ) {

    return false;



return true;

This worked great! Thanks Tarun. I did have to fix one typo. I changed the first line to getDueDate.
