If you add a server-side script to your URL field, you can execute the get and store the result in another form field like this:


def url = getFieldById(getFieldChanged()).value
def targetField = getFieldByName("Url fetch result field name")
def responseText
def httpBuilder = new HTTPBuilder(url)
httpBuilder.request(Method.GET, ContentType.JSON) {
response.success = {resp, json->
response.failure = {resp, data ->
targetField.setFormValue("Unable to fetch data from $url. The status was $resp.statusLine. The HTTP GET returned the following text: ${data.toString()}")

Note that this will execute after you focus changes from the URL field.

Also, it will fail if the URL is bad or doesn't return a valid json (this method automatically parses the json into an object). So you may want to wrap the httpBuilder request into a try/catch block.
