Using Power Script to use validator not working

I am evaluating Power Script to be used in our JIRA. As I am following the sample code for validator (comments required) to transition to another workflow, it does not seem to work. There is no comment provided, but the transition still happens. 

How to get this to work?I have set it up for transition in my workflow. I am using SIL 4.0.6 version.

Thank you.

The following sample script worked for me. Are you sure you associated the script as a validator with the intended transition?


Use this script as a workflow transition validator to allow transition only if
a comment has been supplied.

string errorMsg = "You must enter a comment!";
if(!hasInput("comment")) {
  return false, "comment", errorMsg;



Hi Justin,

Thank you for the reply. I have followed the instruction and put the transition as part of the validator.

If you see my workflow below, the 'check_for_comment' transition from 'BACKLOG' to 'IN PROGRESS', I have validator set. I could see from your answer that it works for me. I am trying to figure out what do I miss. Could you please give me some pointers/information?

Thank you.


Hi @Junianto Kosasih, I see this question is pretty old. Are you still having problems with this?
