Custom field value hide/show on the baisis of value selection from other field in jira cloud

i Have jira cloud installed at my end . i have a requirement where i have two select list custom field "Initiative Type" and "Non-financial initiative type" , so on the basis of value selected in Initiative type, the field non-financial initiative type shouldhide or show it values. we have scriptrunner installed on JIRA cloud, but we dont know how to configure this as behaviour is not part of scriptrunner on jira cloud.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hello @sujata birajdar 

Unfortunately, it is not possible to make a field required based on other custom field values as we do not have the Behaviour feature in the ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud. However, this is something we are considering at the moment, as shown on the ticket In our public backlog located here.

At the moment, I can confirm that the ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud plugin is unable to perform any dynamic validation on issue forms like the server version can with the Behaviors feature due to the restricted functionality and API’s which Atlassian provide inside Jira Cloud as Atlassian only provides a Rest API in Jira Cloud and not the same Java API that the server version contains.

I hope this explains your enquiry.

Thank you.

Kind Regards


I activated it with the Behaviors feature of the Adaptavist Scriptrunner application. 

def MergeNeedField = getFieldById("customfield_16896")
def MergeNeedDetailField = getFieldById("customfield_16890")

def selectedOption = MergeNeedField.getValue() as String
log.debug "Selected option: $selectedOption"

if (selectedOption == "Yes") {
else {

Hello @sujata birajdar 

Did you solve this problem? I need a similar structure. 

when I select the Value "Yes" from "Merge Need" field (single select), "Merge Need Detail (Multiple select field) should be see.

when I select the Value "No" from "Merge Need" field (single select), "Merge Need Detail (Multiple select field) should not be see.



No, I believe in JIRA cloud this functionality is not available .

Still waiting for someone to confirm or provide a solution from Atlassian Community.
