Cascading select field: dashboard statistic

Hello,

I just created a custom field cascading type. It works well for our purpose, only the dashboard gadget does not work the way I need. I want to show the issue statisic (or for example a pie chart) listing only the parent values. In the dashboard however, this is not possible, but the whole cascading value is shown.

Eg: Europe - Germany, Europe - France, Africa - Southafrica etc. I would need the piechart showing Europe, Asia, Africa, America, -> so only the first values.

Ist this somehow possible?

Are you planning to change that?

 

Thanks,

Claudia

I am in desperate need of this function as well.  We use it to show relationships between business segments and their related departments Ex: Parent: IT  Child: Communications, Network, Development, Support...etc But I need to show a pie chart on the dashboard for the "Parent of IT" so we can see as a whole how busy IT is and a separate one for the child so we can see what area of IT is being hit the hardest. I have about 5 other use cases where this functionality is needed.

The point of a cascading select is the second selection, not the first.  The first one is there to group up the options for the second, so that's why the pie chart uses the second one.

I don't believe Atlassian are going to change that, as most of us would want to report on the second field, although it would be nice to have the option.

I've only been asked about this once before, years ago, and I usd the Script Runner to write a listener that picked up issue changes and copied the first half of the field into another (not user editable) select list.
