Can custom field values be connected?

I have 2 fields both drop down


Name_Short: (this is for creating issues)





Name_Long: (This is for the edit/view screen)

John Doe

John Smith

Tom Smith


When i select AAA in Name_Short i would like that John Doe is selected in Name_Long and Viceversa.


Is it possible?

Yes you can do it with workflow post functions and using different screens for create and view screens.

  1. Add both fields to your field configuration
  2. Add Name_Short to create screen
  3. Add Name_Long to view screen and every workflow transition screen for which you want it to be editable
  4. For create transition of your workflow add script post function that sets value of Name_Long based on Name_Short, you can check this documentation

use nfeed plugin which will suit best for this type of scenario. You can also use the concept of nfeed plugin to develop a listener to do the job.
