Filter values in a custom drop-down list field


It is possible to filter the values in a custom drop-down list field based on another field?

For example, if I have a drop-down list containing multiple values for different organizations, for each ticket I want to display in the drop-down list only the values related to the organization on the issue.

Hi @Cristina Sandulescu,

The obvious answer could be to use a Cascading select list, where you filter the second list of options based on the first list. However, that would not work with your organization field of course.  

Sadly, available options that work for server / datacenter, are not so easy on cloud or even possible at all. Atlassian doesn't allow apps like Insight and Scriptrunner (with Behaviours)  to get the data of issue fields while you are still creating them, or so I understood. 
However, since Insight is now part of Atlassian, this could change for them in the (near) future. 

So, not an immediate solution for now, but I hope in the future there will be!

Hi Tessa,

Appreciate your response but I cannot use a Cascading select list because I don't want to display the first part (the client should not choose his own name or view the other clients).

Hi Cristina,

You could do that with the add-on ProForma forms. But I am not aware of any other way to accomplish your scenario in Jira Cloud.
