Can you create an automation against a custom field that is a multi level chooser?

Hello again, 


I am trying to create assignment rules based on a custom field I created for category and subcategory. I created a multi level drop down for category and subcategory. When I go to select the field in the If condition it is not there. Is it because it is a multi level?

Hi @AJ Greiner 

If I understand correctly, you are creating Cascading Select List for your custom field. I believe, the Cascading Select List field type is not supported in the Jira automation field condition.

For the workaround, you may want to refer to the previous discussion in



Thank you Marini, 


After reading the discussion you suggested I am looking to do the opposite. I want to change the value of a single drop down chooser depending on what is chosen in the cascading list. Hope that makes sense.
