required checkbox

we need to publish Request offering which won't allow user to create service request while they don't accept some terms.

But if we create required 'I agree' checkbox, ticket can be saved while leaving the checkbox unchecked, too.

The 'best' which I found out so far is required simple list (dropdown) with just 1 value 'I agree' :) Could you please advise how you handle such situations when you need user to accept license etc.? Thanks

    @Peter_Miklian - The simple list with True and False is the best way. A boolean control will always pass because despite that fact that it is required, false is a valid value.

    @Justin_Workman Yes, I know that boolean 'False' is correct value, too.

    Simple element with Yes/No is not exactly what correct - users selects 'No' (he doesn't accept license) so the ticket is created uselessly and will be cancelled by analyst. It would be the same as as boolean, no added value as 'No' answer would fill requirement, too.

    We want to prevent user from saving SR without accepting terms, that's why I say list with 1 'forced' value 'Yes' is the only way now, although it looks silly.

    In fact, it might be nice if @Jeff_Lang's suggestion was somehow part of the RO Toolbox @john_doyle

    oops i forgot to force the save button to disabled when it first loads and this tag has been used, insert this after line 237 (right before the call to forceCheckboxAcceptance) to do that

    $('button.btn.btn-link span.fa.fa-check').parent().prop('disabled',true);

    @Jeff_Lang thank you for the customization but since Request Offering Query Picker was released natively in portal we do not need to use ROToolbox.

    @Justin_Workman maybe add this option to ROQP modify true/false input? Should I create separate feature request? Thanks.

    I created feature request here, all users missing this feature can vote here: https://community.cireson.com/discussion/5331/required-checkbox/
