Custom Fields Edited

Would like to ask if it's possible to set-up a custom fields for this scenario.

1. I have a custom field (single field list)

2. If i select once of the value in single field list. The next custom field would display fields related to the above custom field.

for e.g. Custom fields below

Category: There are selections like "System, Profile, Data, etc"

selected is System

SubCategory: will list all available selections related to System like Database, Maintenance, etc.

 Basically, something like Parent - Child relationship of custom fields

Is this somewhat feasible? Appreciate your help. Many Thanks!

Hi Erwin,

I think, what you need is a custom field of type "Select List (cascading)".

There you have two select lists - the available values of the second one depend on the selected value of the first one.

Without any code or add-ons, you've just described a custom field of type "cascading select list",   Try adding one of those to your Jira.  The only difference between your description and what they do is location - the pair of fields for a cascading select appear next to each other on one line.

Hi Thomas and Nic,

Thank you for your prompt assistance. I'll try this one and will let you know.

Appreciate the help.

It worked, this should be enough. Thank you folks!
