Require fields by status

I have certain fields that need to be filled in before moving to the next status in my workflow. The data for these fields is not known in the previous statuses, so it can't be set as a required field before the record reaches a certain status.

The additional issue is that my JIRA workflow configuration requires these fields by status, so if the status changes in Aha!, if these fields are not filled, the sync fails because they are now required in JIRA.

I would like to be able to designate fields as required by status.

    Yes please - I need certain fields to have a value before moving to a new state. For example, making sure a Feature is assigned a Release before moving to a "Ready for Development" state.

    Mandatory fields on Jira must be inherited through the integration to Aha to allow proper issue type handling ( e.g. prior to closure of an EPIC, our Jira mandate to set resolution field first ) – otherwise, it’ll create constant sync issues

    To me, this seems to be like a bug or lack of basic functionality on aha

    Definitely a need - especially when you do have integrations that become not useful as most users don't pay attention to any sync failure - admins have to monitor through the issues and it's not worth the time and effort when you are using in large implementation.

    This is great! I would also ask that if we FLAG a story as BLOCKED (Similar to JIRA) that the system requires you to populate a Blocked Reason

    Dates and estimates are fields that come to mind specifically.

Create conditional required fields

Many times , We need additional information depending on certain workflow states or other information. Ideally there would be a way for us to have a field that is required after a certain value is set. Examples - - On an idea, when we say that som...

Conditional work flow

Its really badly needed to be able to build conditional workflow using custom fields and application fields.
