Is there a way to tie a database query to a combobox in jira?

Hi Dave,

Please take a look on [KCF Pro|]. If offers you 6 types of custom fields: single and multi select, with or without autocomplete, radio buttons and checkboxes. The options can be rendered as Strings (by default) or as Issue/Project/User/Group/Component/Version pickers.

From what I understood, you want a KCF Multiple Autocomplete. Check this example:


Hope this helps,

And ScriptRunner for JIRA as always:

With scripted fields. Though I'm a bit uncertain if a scripted field can display and selection options in a dropdwon

Do any of these options have a combo box like what is shown in the provided link.


Kepler's Database Custom FIeld and NFeed definitely offer a dropdown with autocomplete renderer. I have used them in the past.

One example is DBCF:

And NFeed also has an autocomplete element:

Do you need multiple selection as well?

We are connecting our client and program database to JIRA for billing purposes.  We have clients that have over 1000 programs, so a simple drop down isnt user friendly, and there are some users that dont know all of their program names (how they are entered into the db) so, autocomplete has some issues as well.   A combobox would meet these needs perfectly.  Is there a way to create one, either by custom code or a plugin?

We currently have both script runner and database custom fields installed (used in the current implementation)

Here is a sample of what I am looking for

And it's been tested with tables with tens of millions of options.
