Require Work Item Owner when Planned For Is Specified

Thomas Loeber (62237750) | asked Dec 22 '15, 7:37 a.m.
How does one make one work item field required when another field goes from unassigned to a value? We would like to enforce that all work items must have an owner specified when the planned for field goes from unassigned or backlog to a Release or Sprint value.  Short of making Planned For required on a state transition I see no way to accomplish this.

you would have to write a server side advisor extension to create this enforcement.

Thanks Sam. Not having done this before I searched the support libraries and found this tutorial from 2010 on Creating Custom Operation Advisors
Do you know of any more recent articles that might help?
