[Workflow] Validator: I need check "remaining estimate" = 0 (Jira Cloud)

I do not want people start an issue without a remaining estimate. So the Transistion should perform a validation. But there is no option to validate these field "> 0"? I have with "Field Required Validator" the possibility to check if it is empty. But i need empty OR 0.

At the conditions there is the possibility with "Value Field". But that does not help. Now the button for the transition is missing but nobody knows why.

I need the same check at validation to give some feedback of the field is empty or 0.

Is there a solution?

Hello, Tobias,


You're always able to write your own plugin or use script runner to implement validator you need. 

Hi @Mikhail Kopylov, unfortunately, I do not really understand your answer. Can you give me more details? Where do I have to look in Jira Cloud in the "Workflow Manager" to fulfill my described requirement?

Thank you

Thank you for your answer. But for me that is not a solution. That should be a feature that Jira do without an extra addon.

As far as I know there's no such feature out-of-the-box.

You can filter issues by remainingEstimate field, but you want to have a validator based on this field. And there're only permission-based validators in stock JIRA.
