Script Validator: Check for linked issue of certain issue type


I'd like to add a validator that checks the following:

If the user sets the select list field 'Liefertreuerelevanz' to 'Ja' exactly one issue by the type of 'Liefertreue KPI' must be linked to carry out the transition.

If no issue is linked, I'd like to show an error message.

Thanks for your help.

I added a validator with the following code:

if (cfValues['Liefertreuerelevanz']?.value == 'Ja') {
return issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.getId())*'Liefertreue KPI')
  • Checks to see if the user selects a value from 'Liefertreuerelevanz' and that value is 'Ja'
  • If the valye is 'Ja', check links to see that there is an issue type of 'Liefertreue KPI'
  • If the linked issue is found, return true. Else, return false and display an error message. I put my error message at the top.
