script validator - fixversion

Hi, I'm trying to add a validator on an existing transition.

"If the Fixversion field has no value, user should get a message "fix version must have a value", and is not allowed to transmit untill fixversion has a value"

I've tried this with custom fields - cfvalues['somefield'] - and this works for custum fields, but not for the field fixversion

Any ideas ?

you can try something like this

def fixVersion= issue.getFixVersions();
 if (fixVersion == null) {
//throw error message here

You can use the "simple scripted validator" where the condition should just be:


Let groovy worry about whether it's null or an empty collection or whatever.

Hi, tried this - error message is thrown every time...even if fixversion has a value.

But I tried only:

def fixVersion= issue.getFixVersions()

This resolved my problem

Thank's :-)

glad to hear it worked!!

Hi Arild,

You must add your .groovy script as validator for your transition.

You can use these codes as groovy workflow validator script

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collection;
import com.atlassian.jira.config.ConstantsManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.Version;
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException;

Collection<Version> fixVersions = new ArrayList<Version>();
	fixVersions = issue.getFixVersions();
	if(fixVersions.size() == 0)
		invalidInputException = new InvalidInputException("fixVersions","Fix Versions field can not be empty.");

def fixVersion= issue.getFixVersions()

This resolved my problem

Thank's :-)

There is a field required validator provided by suite utilities plugin which you can use.
