Scriptrunner convert to multichoice select list



Can we convert the text field into multichoice select list instead of multiselect using scriptrunner. Also, if not multichoice then can we enable user to write the multiple values  directly instead of selecting from the list.

so that user can use both feature either select from list or type themselves.


thanks ..

Hi Ash, 

By 'multichoice select list', are you perhaps referring to a checkboxes or radio buttons field? If so, I filed a new feature request for that about a fortnight ago. You can check it out & vote for it here.

As for allowing users to add their preferred values to a select list, I think that you can work with a Select List and a Text Field. For example, you can have an 'Other' option in that Select List and set up a Behaviour to hide the Text Field initially. When a user selects 'Other', display that Text Field which let the user types some values. Then, you may set up a Listener that helps create and add the new values as options to that Select List. There's an example documented here: Select Lists with Other

I hope this helps.
