Hi All ,


I have Resolved this issue my self by using script runner plugin  Behavior  

here is the thing what to do admin settings----->Add-ons--->Behaviors---->Add a Behavior give an name----->Click On Fields--> in that select workflow of project in "Guide workflow" option------>In a fields tab "Add Field"  Select List custom field------>after that click on "Add server-side script".   here is the script that you have to use 

def otherFaveField = getFieldByName("Name Of TextField") //Give a text field custom field name that you have created 
def faveFruitField = getFieldById(getFieldChanged())

def selectedOption = faveFruitField.getValue() as String
def isOtherSelected = (selectedOption == "Other" || selectedOption == "D") //instead of Other/D You can give another option that you want

otherFaveField.setHidden(! isOtherSelected)


and then Save it ---->go back to Behaviors--->you will see "Add Mapping" on the side of "Fields" ------>click it and map to "Choose projects(required)" and "Choose issue type" click on Add Mapping

thats it its all got to go


when creating/Editing an ticket in the project while creating when you choosing the Select List custom field selecting the "Other"  option it will automatically display the Text Field that you have created and if select another option it wont display the text field




Hi All,

Here is another script this one when you edit the ticket and change the option the text field gonna be empty and disappear

example: the above script when you select the option "D" or "Other" a text field should be appear will enter the text and we created ticket 

after creating ticket if you want to edit the selected list filed with another options like "A or B or C" the above  script still shows the text field that you have entered while you selected option "D" or "Other".

So now with this new script when you edit the selected list filed with options like "A or B or C" the text field also disappears 


//customfield_12003 - Data Change Exception
//customfield_12004 - Other Description
|| getFieldById("customfield_12003").getValue().equals("Other")){


 I hope it helps sombody
