Sorry for the late responce.
You need to create a new screen (for example name it - Resolving Issue Screen) and add Time Tracking field. In the workflow, configure the transition (one that is used to Resolve the task) - add newlly created screen to Transition View. Then add validators - select "Field Required Validator" and in the "Field" configuration select "Time Spent".

Hope this will help.

Best wishes,

Hi Sarunas,

You can add "Time Tracking" field to Transition screen (to screen when resolving issue) and set validator "Required Field" to "Time spent"


Tamara, could you explain a bit more? I`m quite experienced user, but still I failed to do what you have advised me. Thanks.

There is no such validator in vanilla JIRA 6.4.x. Either the info is outdated, or maybe an addon is required.

I think this refers to extra validators that are added when you install the free plugin 'JIRA Suite Utilities'

Tried... seems a bit complicated :)
