Check for Duplicate Link when Resolution is Duplicate


This ScriptRunner validator checks that you have a duplicate link on an issue that you are trying to give a Duplicate resolution to. If you don't have a Duplicate issue linked, an error is shown.


As a project manager, I want to ensure the Duplicate resolution is used correctly, and that I do not forget to add a duplicate link when I transition an issue with the Duplicate resolution value. This validator script stops the transition of a duplicated issue is there is no Duplicate issue link.
