Newbie question on validators in workflows - Jira 6.3

I have the workflow : To do -> In progress -> Done

There is a transition : 'Start progress' to go from 'To-do' to 'In-progress'

I want to add a validator to this transition that the fields Priority and Story points must be populated .

How do I do this?

When I click on 'Add validator' I see three types of validator : Complete Session Validator, User Permission Validator, Permission Validator.

None of these helps me to add the validator I want.

Please advise.

This plugin provides very good post-functions and validators. One of them is to make the fields required on a transition, which is what you want.

I would suggest you to install this plugin.


Hi Vijay,

I see 'This add-on is free and pre-installed on your OnDemand instance.' when I try to install it

Sorry, I didn't realize it was not enabled.

Once I enabled it, I got what I wanted.

Thanks a ton
