Validators

Validators are used to validate the input made on the transition screen after the transition is triggered

Jira Misc Workflow Extensions makes the following Validators available to Jira administrators:

  • Build-your-own (scripted) ValidatorA workflow validator that is based on the result of a Jira expression.  
  • Comment Required ValidatorA workflow validator that forces users to enter a comment during a transition. If the user does not enter a comment, a custom error message will be displayed.
  • Field Required ValidatorA workflow validator which ensures that the specified field has a value during a transition.
  • Linked Issues ValidatorA workflow validator which ensures that issues linked to the current issue (existing and ones added during the transition) have certain characteristics.
  • Linked Issues Status ValidatorA workflow validator which ensures that the current issue's linked issues (existing and ones added during the transition) are in one of the selected statuses.
