Validate against Custom Date Field and another Custom Field

Hi all smile

Ok, I need to perform a validation in a transistion. I´ve got two Custom Fields:

"FBD" which is a date picker

"Probability" which is a select list (single choice)

This is the logic I am looking for:

If "Probability" = 100%, then I want to validate that "FBD" is not empty (i.e. "FBD" has to have a date).

If  "Probability" = 0%, then "FBD" can be empty and in fact, I don´t want to check it at all.

I am going to use Script Workflow Function and if I use this:


then FBD is always required regardless of the value in "Probability" (since it´s not checked). So I tried OR-ing like this:

(cfValues['Probability']?.value == '0%') || (cfValues['Probability']?.value == '100%' && cfValues['FBD'])

But it doesn´t work :/  Any ideas? 

Thanks guys.

Hi Kristjan

Apparently the cfValues for date doesn't work as expected. Try to retrieve the value using the customFieldManager, in your case:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("FBD")
def fbdValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customField)
(cfValues['Probability']?.value == '0%') || 
    (cfValues['Probability']?.value == '100%' && fbdValue)

Hope that helps

Thanks Thanos. Weird how date doesn´t work as expected. Now wonder I got nowhere. You rock! This worked. Thanks SO very much for your help. Kudos to you smile

What scripting add-on is this?

Hi Steven.

To be honest, I am not totally sure. I think it´s Groovy though. Here is a picture of it with an example from the manufacturer:

That is ScriptRunner yes. I'll label your post with ScriptRunner so Adaptavist may find it easier. If I can assist I will post an Answer.
