Verb + description enforcement for naming of JIRA issues.

I would like to stop members of my team from making vague ticket names and enforce a policy. Is this possible out-of-the-box?

Try adding a scripted validator (script runner) on the "Create Issue" transition of the workflow which will validate the summary filed against a regex for example and fail if it does not meet a criteria.

Beauty! Thanks Boris - I didn't know how to get to those parts. Your wording gave me a sniff of where to look :)

I got stuck on how to add a validator (although I have not attempted it yet), for those that come across this Q&A I was about to ask:

- Adding a validator only allows me to select from existing validators (e.g. User Permissions and an obsolete one).

Then a bit of searching and your wording, in hindsight 20/20 vision, led me to the Script Runner add-on here

Thanks once again for pointing me in the right direction Boris.
