Why write? We have a regex custom field, just use this pattern: '[0-9]{10}+'. . It's free.

Edited: For existing custom fields, you may need to write javascript.

i tried that plug in, it is showing that disabled..please help me

You need to install katl-commons first.

Hi Malli,

You want the validation to be on a screen of a transition? Or to be necessary to execute right before the transition? for example need 'Work Hours' to close an issue.

need to check validtion before submit page..please

var beforesubmit=document.getElementById('issue-create-submit');
beforesubmit.onclick = function ()


Put your javascript validation code here. And make this script description of any custom field that is being used in your jira form.



Need further help let me know.

Cheers.. @tul
