Behaviours Plugin

The behaviours plugin allows an administrator to create one more or behaviours, which can be thought of as "Behaviour Schemes". A behaviour defines how fields behave. Some examples of behaviours are:

  • Making a field mandatory depending on other data entered in to the form
  • Making a field read-only dependent on user role or group
  • Doing server-side validation of field data, before the form is submitted
  • Setting a field value dependent on other form data

Please see the comprehensive list of examples on the wiki page for more ideas.

Sadly this plugin does not work with the current JIRA 6.1.6 using the current plugin version 0.5.10. There is a NullPointerException being thrown while reindexing JIRA. The bug ( and it's variations ( are known for about 2.5 years now, but it seems there has been no solution yet. Very sad, because this plugin had some really promising features...

This plugin is very useful and we would like to know when it will be compatible for the jira 6.2 release please? "Sorry for the precedent comment I let with the (wrong) rate because it was not my intention. I rarely put post there so i didn't really know about this system..."
