validator to allow transition only if epic has at least one child

Hi...I need a validator to allow a transition only if the epic has at least one child. I tried to  use one of the examples under the simple scripted validator section in scriptrunner (Has at least one outward duplicate link) and adapted it to what I need but it does not seem to work:

issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*'is epic of')


I also changed it from Outward to Inward to see if that made a difference but still no luck. Maybe it can not be done like that and it needs an actual script? If so, any ideas?


Thank you

Hi Tomas, 

If there is at least one child in the epic then the following will return true 

ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks( { == "Epic-Story Link"}

Which is similar to what you have with the only difference the epic link type name. 

Hi works.

As always, thank you very much!
