Hi @Ravi Kanth For setting custom field Defect Category and Technical Cause mandatory based on Resolution system field. For this you have to apply Server side script on Resolution field and apply the following script. Kindly change field id and Resolution name in If/else statement. 

hope it works for you!

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.resolution.Resolution

def resolutionField = getFieldById("resolution")
def fixVersionsField = getFieldById("fixVersions")
def defect = getFieldById("customfield_12345")
def technical = getFieldById("customfield_78910")

def resolution = resolutionField.getValue() as Resolution

if ( == "Fixed") {
} else {



Hi@Vikrant Yadav ,

Thank u soo much...
the code works  but when reverting back the selection to "Please Select.." custom Field still remains as mandatory.Resolution-Issue.PNG

@Ravi Kanth May i know Please Select is a value you added to Resolution field ? If Yes, try to add "Please select.." in else statement. 

else if ( == "Please select.." ) {

 Usually Default value comes for mandatory Resolution field.It seems that you added Please Select... value in Resolution. 

Let me know, how it works.
