  1. Validate anonymous author email address and make comment required:
    ticketvalidator.* = enabled
    validate_author = true
    validate_author.tip = Please fill your valid email address
    validates = comment, summary
    comment.rule = .*
    comment.tip = Please input comment
    summary.rule = [A-Z].*
    summary.tip = Please correct summary

Please note: when validating more than one field, use a list after "validates =".

  1. There is a very straightward implement of parent/child tickets, just prepend parent ticket number to the child ticket summary. For example, the parent ticket 234 summary is <#0>A parent ticket, the child ticket summary will be <#234>A child ticket. We can do validation like following:
    ticketvalidator.* = enabled
    validates = summary
    summary.rule = ^<#\d*>.*
    summary.tip = Please correct summary format
