ScriptRunner - make Multicheckboxes option read-only

Hello guys,


I have been searching a a lot and I could not find a good code / answer about my feature I've been trying to implement.

I just used a simple "Checkbox" field and fill it with options, then I fill it with default values using jira native custom field manager.

The only think I want to add (and I think it possible and easy enough using SR) is make my default values that I've picked earlier read only so users wont be able to deselect them.


basically Its a checkbox list with default and unchangeable options and a few changeable optiosn.


Thanks for help!

Hi @Daniel Ben Eliyahu ,

Here is a script to restrict options in the picker

If you can make your values default values, you can then just limit the values to users. Needs little tweaking, but may work :)

unfortunately I am quiet a novice on script runner.

I know for sure that in JS that command to make an option read only is:



not sure how to figure it out on groovy.

I just solved it by creating another checkbox field with the same name and with the options I want to check on default, then used SR behaviors  to make it read-only.


Could not find any solution regarding my case at all.
