Validator to restrict spaces on custom field text

Jason Galea Aug 13, 2018



I am trying to set up a validator on issue creation using "ScriptRunner for JIRA" to only allow a field to be filled in only if there are no 'Spaces'


abc 123 < Incorrect

abc123 < Correct


Any suggestions please?

Hi @Jason Galea,


it should work if you get the field value as string and then check, for example with the contains-method, if there are any spaces within.

Use this as your validator condition:

!cfValues["FIELD_NAME"]?.value.contains(" ")

It works. Thanks a lot @Roland Holban
