Here is a groovy code:

In this case, if the cascading field is empty return false if the field has value in both of the fields - then return true

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.impl.CascadingSelectCFType

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();

def customFieldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Cascading field name"));
HashMap<String, Option> hashMapEntries = (HashMap<String, Option>) customFieldValue
if(customFieldValue != null){
Option parent = hashMapEntries.get(CascadingSelectCFType.PARENT_KEY)
Option child = hashMapEntries.get(CascadingSelectCFType.CHILD_KEY)

if(parent == null || child == null){
return false
return true
return false
