How can I update a text field converted to select list by ScriptRunner Behaviours script?


I have a text field that I am converting to a select list using the tutorial from   The field worked great as an initialiser function, but I'd like to use the field as a server-side script for a user picker field.  When the user selects a different user with the user picker, the select list shows all issues where that user is the reporter.  I tried to do this following the tutorial under 'Dynamically Changing the Picker Query'.  The script works, but each time the user picker field is updated a new drop down box appears above the previous one.  Is there a way to remove the old drop down box?

Here is the code I am working with:

//Server-side script for user picker field

def traveler = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def linkedIssuesField = getFieldByName("Linked issue selection")

ajaxOptions: [
url : getBaseUrl() + "/rest/scriptrunner-jira/latest/issue/picker",
query : true,

data : [
currentJql : "Reporter in (${traveler.getValue()}) ORDER BY key ASC",
label : "Which trip is this update for?",
formatResponse: "issue"
css : "max-width: 500px; width: 500px",
else {
// selected project was null - disable control
linkedIssuesField.setReadOnly(true).setDescription("Please select a reporter before entering the issue")


//Server-side script for the issue picker field
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import org.apache.log4j.Logger
import org.apache.log4j.Level
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours

def selectedIssueField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def selectedIssue = selectedIssueField.value as String
log.debug("selectedIssue changed: ${selectedIssue}")
def selectedProject = getFieldByName("Linked issue selection").value

if (selectedIssue && selectedProject) {

def jqlQueryBuilder = JqlQueryBuilder.newBuilder()
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService)
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()

def query = jqlQueryBuilder.where().project(
if (searchService.searchCount(user, query) == 1) {
else {
selectedIssueField.setError("Issue not found in the selected project")


 Thank you

Hi @Mick Lovell 

I am trying to do quite similar to what you did. I am trying to populate the list with values from the database into 2nd element the one which we are converting to select a single value instead of calling results for issues.  

Any idea?



Any news an that?

I have the same problem using a Database Picker to get all organisational units from the database. In a SR behaviour (on change) I get the selected OU and fetch all OU members from database using the convertToSingleSelect. Each time the OU is changed a new Select is appended into the DOM - I just would need the content of the dependent selectbox beeing updated.


By the way in version 5.7.1 there is still no possibility in dynamically loading a selectbox, there is only the option to filter out some preconfigured (select)options but not append new ones?
