Hi Surya – 

This is something that many people have wanted for a long time, but unfortunately there isn’t any way to enforce the presence of affected items through exit required fields.

One thing you can do – is create workflow criteria and/or status criteria to check for affected items before the workflow can be used or before the change can enter a particular status.  The major downside to this (compared to exit required fields) is that there won’t be any specific error message telling the user exactly what the issue is – so it becomes a training issue.

Hi Surya,

The best way to go about it is writing a simple Groovy Script. Configure it on Change-Status event and in subscriber mention Error Handling Rule –> Stop. 

Sample Script
import com.agile.agileDSL.ScriptObj.IBaseScriptObj
import com.agile.agileDSL.ScriptObj.AgileDSLException;
import com.agile.api.*;

void invokeScript(IBaseScriptObj obj) {

try {

def session = obj.getAgileSDKSession()
IWFChangeStatusEventInfo eventInfo = obj.getPXEventInfo()
dataObject = eventInfo.getDataObject()
IChange m_change = (IChange)dataObject

ITable affectedItem = m_change.getTable(ChangeConstants.TABLE_AFFECTEDITEMS)

if (affectedItem.size()<=0) {
throw new AgileDSLException(“Please add Affected Item(s) prior to submitting this Change”);


catch(AgileDSLException ex) {
throw new AgileDSLException(ex.getMessage());
