Cascade Select List setFieldOptions for children groovy


How can I restrict parent *and child values* in a cascading select list using groovy / Script Runner?


Set form values is straight forward:

and I know how to set single select list options:

def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName(fieldName)
def fieldConfig = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())

def options = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig)

def optionsMap = options.findAll {
it.value in ["TBD"] // list of options you want to show
}.collectEntries {
(it.optionId.toString()): it.value


What form should the optionsMap take for cascading select list? Map[ OptionsId, {value list}]? 


Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Hi @Carlos David 

I recently answered a similar question few days ago. Take a look here.

You can try something like this.

def parentField = getFieldById("customfield_10802")
def parentFieldValue = parentField.getValue()
def childField = getFieldById("customfield_10802:1")
def childFieldValue = childField.getValue()

Let me know if this works.


Hi Ravi,

I want to set the parent and child options in the cascade select list, not get the values. I don't think this is possible however.
