Using Behaviour and Multielect customfield

Hello the community,

I have a little issue with behaviour with a multiselect customfield and I need your help.

To explain the case, When I create a ticket, I use a Multi select customfield and depending a value from the this cf, I need to show/required another customfield.


import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.*
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.*
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.util.UserMessageUtil

FormField QOPSubReason = getFieldById("customfield_17890")//QOP Sub-Reason
FormField Grades = getFieldById("customfield_10424")//Grades

if(getFieldById("customfield_17890").getValue().toString().contains("Isabel - 06-Allocation")){


But the behaviour does'nt work.

When I check selected value it appears as "NULL"

I suppose I need to put a loop or something like this to get every time I change the value from the multiselect

Thank you in advance

Hi @Cedric_DEVAUX ,

I tried this snippet and it works fine : 

def QOPSubReason = getFieldById("customfield_17890")
def Grades = getFieldById("customfield_10424")
def QOPSubReasonValue = QOPSubReason.getValue()

if (QOPSubReasonValue.find { it == "Isabel - 06-Allocation"}){
else {

Most importantly, map this behaviour to the "QOP Sub-Reason" field, so it listens to any update to it.



Hi @Antoine Berry 

This part works fine thank you! :)

... But I have another issue ...

Before this behaviour I have another behaviour to determine values of QOPSubreason from values of QOPReason.


I select value 1 on QOP Reason, on QOP Sub Reason I will have values "Isabel - 06-Allocation", B, C

I select value 2 on QOP Reason, I will obtain on QOP Sub Reason no value


The problem is when I select by mistake value 1 on QOP Reason and value "Isabel - 06-Allocation" the QOP Sub Reason behaviour will activate Grades field but If just after I select value 2 on QOP Reason, the script keep the previous value of QOPSubreason and the field Grade stay visible whereas it must be hidden.


I hope my explanation is cleared ...

So my problem is to detect changes from QOP Reason into behaviour on QOPSubreason in order to reset QOPSubReasonValue.


Thank you

Hi @Cedric_DEVAUX ,

I guess you can juste hide Grades field when QOP Reason does not allow "Isabel - 06-Allocation" on QOP Reason behaviour? i.e. something like 

if (!QOPSubReasonValue.find { it == "value 1"}){
