Is it possible to change field context of a field by changing a value in another custom field?

Hi Guys,

I have this requirement where when a user selects a value from components field , the custom field "Area" must be populated with suited context.

Like if;

Component = abc

Area = Arrivals; Requests, Trailers, Yard


Component = def

Area = Carriers, Transfer Bookings, Vendors


Here area is a custom field with 2 context (abc and def with values Arrivals; Requests, Trailers, Yard for abc and values Carriers, Transfer Bookings, Vendors for def in its context).


Is it possible in any way?

Check out the behaviors plugin. I don't use it, but from other questions in the forum it may work for this.

I don't think it's easy via behaviours plugin to change the context, sure it can change the value of the custom field within the same context but not the whole context.

Forget the idea of changing the context.  That is something that is done at the back end, and not only is it a back-end configuration, it's one that often requires you to re-index if it is changed, and what you're trying to do would need to do that.  It's a red-herring here, totally the wrong approach.

But, the Behaviors add-on can fill fields, without messing with contexts or anything like that.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
