Transition validator : one or more linked issue must exist

Hi,

I would like to create a "validator" on a transition which validate the existance of a linked issue.

my case :
A user make a proposition on "support" project.
Accept the transition to state "accepted", only if a linked issue has been created on the "dev" project.

Is there a way to do this on Jira onDemand ?

Best Regards,
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Teams that have previoulsy tried this set-up have had success using Groovy Script Runner as discussed here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/159524/validator-script-to-check-status-of-all-linked-issues-before-allowing-transition

Within OnDemand, the restricted functions do not allow you to run Groovy Script Runner.

As an alternative you could use the validator - 'Field has been modified Validator' - the validator requiresthe field (Linked Issues) to be modified during the transition. You would need to have the field, Linked Issues, added to the transition screen to meet the validator requirements.

Cheers,

Paul
