To ensure that specific Jira fields have a value during issue transition, use Jira Misc Workflow Extensions' (JMWE) Fields Required workflow validator. Then, if any of your "required" fields are empty, your custom error message will be displayed to prompt the user to input missing values. Also, you can display the missing field's name by simply inserting %field% placeholder.
Here, we use the Transition Caller custom field type to display the person who resolved an issue (as an example). Using this custom field type, you can display, search for and report on the author of any transition based on actual transition IDs or between one, many, or all statuses. We cover the latter one in the above video.
For your convenience, the steps from the above video have been outlined below.
