Using JMWE, you can add a Related Issues Validator on the Create transition with the following options:

  • Mode: "Require the creation of issue links on the transition screen"
  • Issue Link: the link type to require
  • Valditator Scope: check the Conditional Validation checkbox and use a script to apply the validator only to Test issues:
issue.get("issuetype").name == "Test"

Thank you! Its perfectly works!!

@David Fischer _Appfire_ Hello =)
could you help me please write in Groovy 
Estimate Development != "0" and != "EMPTY"
I use it in Field Required Validator in work flow, when transit the issue) 

and may be any docs where I can learn and practice it )

issue.get("customfield_10803") is not null or empty 
this is not working

Assuming customfield_10803 is the Estimate Development field, you can do this:


@David Fischer _Appfire_  but how it should be condition value of this field shouldn't`t be empty or shouldn't`t be "0"?

If customfield_10803 is a Number custom field, what I provided will work (zero is considered as "falsy"). If customfield_10803 is a Text field, then you need:

!!issue.get("customfield_10803") && issue.getAsString("customfield_10803") != "0"

You forgot to mention which app you're using, and whether you're on Server or Cloud. 

If you have scriptrunner, you can use behaviours

In the initializers you can put something like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

if (getActionName().equals("Create")){
def linkType = getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype")
def entry = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueLinkTypeManager).getIssueLinkTypesByName("B locks").collectEntries {it -> [it.outward,it.outward]}
def entry2 = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueLinkTypeManager).getIssueLinkTypesByName("B locks").collectEntries {it -> [it.inward,it.inward]}
