Add a Custom field multi-level-cascading-select field to Service desk. Edited

All, I'll start with the caveat that a similar question has been raised https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Questions/Add-a-Custom-field-multi-level-cascading-select-field-to-Service/qaq-p/600470  but no direct solution provided. 

This seems pretty simple the use case is the following:

1. Single point of entry point in customer portal for multiple issue types (hardware, software, newtwork, mobile, etc). 

2.  Within the above categories there are 2 levels of delineation that end user needs to select .  

Example: 

Level 1 -> Level 2->Level 3 

Hardware -> Desktop/Laptop -> Memory Upgrade 

Hardware -> Desktop/Laptop -> Hard drive upgrade 

Hardware -> Printer -> Zebra 

Hardware -> Printer -> Laser Printer 

Software -> Install -> Chrome 

Software -> Configure-> SnagIT

 

How are other people tacking this problem?  Are you using multiple entry points or is there a solution that I am missing that is straight forward.  the 

 

I know that using multiple entry points in customer portal and multiple custom variables can be used, it messy and trying to avoid it.  

 

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Robert,

you can use Extension for Jira Service Desk. With the plugin you can create multilevel structures for your customer portal.

Best, Pascal

Thanks Pascal, 

The problem with multilevel structures is that only support checkboxes and radio buttons, it would be better if you can have Cascading-Select fields.

One suggestion is this App: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/5008/multi-level-cascading-select?hosting=server&tab=overview

HI, Is this app or any kind of this app available for jira Cloud Version?
