Filtered Cascading Select list?

I have a scenario where we there a select list provided by a plugin (thousands of entries). This makes selection a big pain.

One way to handle this could be to use a filtered cascading select list. This field should take either a static list of parent options or an existing select list as options for the parent list. Each option under a parent could then take a select list with the option to filter the list based on a regex. So the requirements would look something like this.

Type: Cascading Select list

Parent Entry:

  • Must be able to create a static list of entries.
  • Must be able to select an existing select list as entries
  • Must be able to filter the entries if existing select list field is chosen

Child Entry:

  • Same requirements. 

Does anyone know of a plugin that provides such functionality?

Have you tried to use standard "Select list (cascading)" custom field?

That is kind of my point. This is to static. I need to be able to create a cascading select list based on existing single select fields and filter them. 

So a Cascading select list of Customers as parent. When a parent is selected the child list only shows the entries from an existing single select list based on a filter. 

Parent = Bilka

--> Bilka Shop 1

--> Bilka Shop 2

--> Bilka Shop ...

The key here is that the list of shops is a custom field provided by another plugin. 

The problem is also that the existing single select list has thousands of entries. So I want to filter it based on the selection of the Parent.

I'm pretty sure that "Behaviours" in the Script Runner add-on can do this sort of field linking.  But I'd consider converting to a cascading select first.

Thanks @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]. I will take a look at this.
