"Simple scripted validator" is not working

Precondition:
We have uploaded roovy Script Runner plugin.

Steps:
1. Open workflow in edit mode and select first transition "Create issue".screen3_script.png
2. Go to "Add validator" screen.
3. Select "Script validator" -> "Simple scripted validator"
4. Select one of build-in scripts e.g. "Has one or more attachments".
5. Enter text in "Error Message", "Field" is left empty.
6. Save and publish changes (+refresh web browser CTRL+F5).
7. Create new issue:

  • fill in all mandatory fields,
  • add one attachment

Result:
Upon pressing "Create" system displays error message entered in po. 5.
Generally system displays error message ALWAYS, no matter whether condition is validated to true or false.

Please help.

You can't get attachments like this, because they are not available to the attachment manager until the transition has completed. IIRC you will need to check the current HttpRequest, which I don't have the code for off the top of my head.

Thank you very much for prompt reply.
