Cascaded multiselect?

I have a use case where I need some kind of cascaded multiselect, eg:

selecting team A and team D

I found some examples at but my use case does not seems to fit for any of the returned scripts.

Ideas anyone? Thanks!

There are no single fields (built-in or provided by any major plugins I know) that support this sort of data structure.

You could implement this in a couple of ways with Scriptrunner.

  1. With 2 multi-select custom fields (Departments/Teams) and a scriptrunner beaviour script .
    • The team CF would include all teams.
    • The scriptrunner behaviour script would need to hard code or lookup department/team relationship. Or alternatively, the team options all include the department (Dept X - Team A) and then you could use a logic filer.
    • Upon selecting a department, the scriptrunner behaviour script would adjust the list of visible options in the teams cf to only show the combination of teams for all the selected departments.
  2. Using a single text custom field with scriptrunner behaviour select list conversion
    • I'm not sure this would give you the desired user experience, but perhaps worth exploring.
