CF multi select request


I have a CF multi select in my project and I need to set off the second column as requirement.

How can I do this?

That's a "cascading select", not a "multi select".  I'm not sure what you mean by "set off" when you're talking about doing something to the second column?

Hi Nic! I need the value of second column be required too. this value is used to set my SLA time.

Ah, thanks, that explains it.

I'm afraid you need code.  If you have the Script Runner add-on, you can put validators into the workflow to force entry (my notes say the single line cfValues['your cascading field']?.values()*.value.size() == 2 will do it, but I did make those notes when working with JIRA 5).  You might also be able to do it with the Behaviours function.

If you don't have Script Runner, you'll need to find or write another add-on to be able to provide a validator

noo code nooo!!! if I use Behaviours function, how is this work?

for the code, i need to a line for a option in my list?



Apologies, I missed the response.

I don't use Behaviours enough to answer that directly.  In general, I can tell you that you should create a new Behaviour, which you can tie to a field, and then put conditions on it like "is mandatory when it matches this rule".  You may be able to use the code I gave for doing it in a validator.
