Other field is not visible

I'm using the scriptrunner to Create a Select List With Other behaviour.

The idea was to select "other" in the prevoiusly created custom field and the script should have populate the single line text field custom field.


def otherFaveField = getFieldByName("Favourite Fruit (Other)")

def faveFruitField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())

def selectedOption = faveFruitField.getValue() as String

def isOtherSelected = selectedOption == "Other"




When I create the behaviour and add the mapping the Favorite Fruit (Other) single line text field does not appear. Any ideas ?

The documentation what I'm trying to achieve here.

The script should work fine.

The steps to reproduce is as followed:

1. You should have a custom select list field named "Favourite Fruit", with some options including "Other". Another custom text field named "Favourite Fruit (Other)".

2. Both fields are configured to show on the screens. You use Behaviour to hide them as needed.

3. Navigate ScriptRunner > Behaviours > create a behaviour > edit > add mapping to your project.

4. Add field: choose "Favourite Fruit" > add server side script > use the script.

I hope this helps!

Thanks it worked.
