is there a script that will validate that there are as many attachments as there are subtaks?

IS it possible to create a validator script that makes sure that an issue has at least the same number of attachments as it does sub-tasks? If so what would that script look like?

Hi Scott,

For a Custom script validator the script would be 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.AttachmentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException

def issue = issue as MutableIssue

def subtasks = issue.subTaskObjects?.size()
def attachments = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(AttachmentManager).getAttachments(issue)?.size()

if (subtasks >= attachments) {
throw new InvalidInputException("Number of attachments should be greater than the number of subtasks")

Hope that helps.

Regards, Thanos
