Show Custom Field if value from another Field is selected

Hi,

On Issue creation, I have a Cascading Select custom field that has a set of Values.

I am trying to run a script where if the 1st drop down has "Paypal" selected, another customfield called "PayPal Payee" should be shown.

If "Paypal" is not selected, the field should remain hiddem

After I created the script below, when selecting "Paypal", the fields still remains hidden

I cannot understand what I am doing wrong. 

Can someone please help me solve this issue?

Hi Jason,

When creating a behaviour, the behaviour should be attached to the field that you want to track or check values from. In your case, you should put this behaviour on the Cascading Select custom field.

Your script isn't far off, but there's some things you need to change. First, Cascading Select Lists return a list of values whenever you call getValue() on the field. Example: ['Parent Option', 'Child Option']

So if you want to check the first dropdown, you'll need to access the first value of the list.

def cascadingField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def cascadingValues = cascadingField.getValue()

def PaypalPayee = getFieldById("customfield_11906")
PaypalPayee.setHidden(true)

if (cascadingValues[0] == "Paypal") {
PaypalPayee.setHidden(false)
}

HI Joshua,

I did use the explenation above but now i have this error

Jason,

The static type checker is not always accurate. The behaviour should work regardless of the error. Try to use it. It worked for me.

Hi Joshua,

Unfortunately, it's not working.

When I open the create issue screen, "Paypal Payee Name" is still shown even if payment type has "None" selected.

I would like this to show only if "Paypal" is selected.

Any other ways I could achieve this? 

Thanks,
Jason

Jason,

It looks like you changed the script that I gave you? You have this in your screenshot:

if (PaymentType[0] == "Paypal")

when it should be this

if (cascadingValues[0] == "Paypal")

That's probably why you're getting that static type checking error, because you're trying to access an index of the object instead of the object's values.

I did exactly the above and works like a charm!

Thank you!

Glad to hear Jason! :)
