How to add multiple validation rules to a single custom field?

I am attempting to add multiple validation rules to single custom field to ensure the values are valid. I am using a text box custom field called 'environment' which can have either dev,test or prod.

I am aware that I can use a drop down box but I want this action to be a bit more deliberate i.e: forcing the user to enter the environment value.

Now I can add a validator rule to the transition like this which works:

cfValues['environment'] == 'dev'

However Its valid for 'test' and 'prod' so I tried the following which doesn't seem to work:

cfValues['environment'] == 'dev' or  cfValues['environment'] == 'test' or  cfValues['environment'] == 'prod'

Also tried adding separate validator rules for the same transition:

cfValues['environment'] == 'dev' 
cfValues['environment'] == 'test'
cfValues['environment'] == 'prod'

Any ideas on how I can ge this to work via validators? or failing with best method forward?

That's not how validators work natively, so you must be using a scripting plugin of some sort.

Could you tell us which one?

(Although, you probably need to join your conditions with OR statements, but I can't tell you how without knowing what you're using for the script or rule engine)

I suspect its script runner as our jira instance was setup by an external party. When I select a validator for the transition, it gives me the option to prform a it via a script. The above is a the simple version where it already pre filled it in for me(not an external script) and then I just modified the actual values.

Mmm, it's worth knowing exactly what the plugin is - "cfValues" isn't a script runner function, so I don't know what's going on.
