Required Fields without Workflow Context

Postby Mustajab Khan » Wed Apr 03, 2019 6:10 pm

Is there any possibility to have a custom field marked as 'required' whenever a certain value of another related custom field is selected?
Eg: I want my field 'justification/rationale'(Rich text field) as a required field whenever 'requirement impact'(an enum dropdown) is set out to be of 'high' value.
It doesn't have anything to do with the 'Status' field so, I cannot use the required fields option in the workflow actions. Is there any alternative/workaround?

the only solution I see is using a pre-save script.
This will give you the possibility to check the value of 'requirement impact' and prevent saving the Work Item if 'justification/rationale' is empty (and display a meaningful message to the user).
