Behaviours plugin filter cascading select list values based on project selection on issue creation

Using the plugin, I would like to filter the parent values of a cascading select list.  I use the following to filter a single select list and it works fine.  

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def formField = getFieldByName("System") 
def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(formField.getFieldId())
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)
def optionsMap = options.findAll {
    it.value in ["ATLAS Cotton",
"C4",
"LDC Insight",
"LDC CRM",
"LATAM C4",
"LATAM DCentral"] 
}.collectEntries {
    [
        (it.optionId.toString()) : it.value
    ]
}
formField.setFieldOptions(optionsMap)

What's the question?

I guess the question is how to do the above with a cascading select.

Hi Todd,

If I understand well, you need to determine if an option in a cascading list is a parent option or not. If that is the case you can use in your's findAll closure

it.getChildOptions()

If the option is a parent option this will return to you it's children, if not then it will return null.

Jamie, That is correct, how do I filter cascading select using something similar to the above. I only need to filter the parent level selections.

I think you want to set the values of a cascading select? I think this is still not supported.
