Checkbox with conditional text field - is it possible?

Hi Everyone,

we'd need a special checkbox field: if option A were checked then a text field would appear and the user needs to add details. It's very common in almost every forms in the web but I don't know whether it can be achieved in Jira? Is it somehow possible?

Thanks in advance for help!

You can use Dynamic Forms for JIRA add-on: or you can use custom Javascript to achieve that. JS can be inserted in custom field description.


Hi Ravi,


thanks a lot for the hint! Indeed I'm not an expert in JS, could you suggest a page or maybe an already existing feature for this?

Many thanks again!
