Can I set a custom field cascade select in Jira SERVER?

I am using JIRA SERVER


I want to set a custom field that is a cascading select in automation for jira. I do NOT wish to copy it from another ticket / field. I just want to set the field using automation for jira in the Advanced Fields section. I am trying this but it won't work. Please help! 


"fields": {
"customfield_23592": { "value": "{{customfield_23592.Product Security}}"

Hi Julia,

If you want to refer to the cascading select field, you need to specify it this way:

"customfield_23592" : { "value": "parent_option1", "child": { "value" : "p1_child1"} }


You can get more information here,

Thank you so much! Since I didn't need to edit the child, this ended up working for me 

"fields": {
        "customfield_23592" : { "value": "Product Security" }


Thank you! 

You're welcome. I'm glad that it solves your problem :)
