Based on Lookup (dropdown) using webservice then get number of fields related to that issue with WS

Stuart Wosika February 21, 2024

Hi guys,


I am trying to do the following:


1. Use a Dropdown field makes Webservice call to get back list of issue from Jira project (this is working)

2. User selects one of the items

3. Now fire another WS call using the key (from step 1) to get back multiple fields for the issue

4 Store these items in fields locally to the form and ideally display the information in a form (rather than a view such as a table)


I looked at Webservice Object Referencing, which allows you to tree walk the JSON to get information back BUT you have to enter some info in the field to trigger the operation, which is not what I want.


I have started to look at the action "lookup based on WS" but cannot get this working. documentation is very limited in relation to have to configure the field for this action.  Feels like this might be what I need though.


So basically looking to see how I can get the above use case working.  I am using Jira as the data here is used by other use cases (non Confiform app related).

I have worked out how to do this by using a Confiform field rule to set field values to JSON fields returned and thus displaying the results.
