Make Portfolio Team field mandatory based on Workflow state (with ScriptRunner)

Marco Monaco April 19, 2018


I need help!! Getting crazy with this:

We have JIRA Server and ScriptRunner, and we are using JIRA Portfolio.

I want to enforce that the Team field (customField) becomes mandatory whenever a user transitions a ticket from Open to something else. So, I tried to setup a Simple scripted validator with ScriptRunner in the transitions of our workflow.

My code is:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.opensymphony.workflow.InvalidInputException
def cfm = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def val = cfm.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_12300')
if (issue.getStatus() != "Open" && issue.getCustomFieldValue(val) == "") {
throw new InvalidInputException("customfield_12300",
"The Team field must be set to continue.")

Thanks in advance,

Hi Marco,

Could you get around this problem?

Kind Regards,

Not really. But we use ScriptRunner Behaviours as a workaround. The Team is mandatory now (for some of our users) independent of the workflow stage.
