Combobox with text search which values are get from Java method after text insert

I would like to have combobox (customfield) which call Java method after every text input (e.g. onkeyup event) to get values. We have millions of data so we don't want to get them all as possible combobox list, we would like to start search for values after type some about 4 chars.

How to invoke java method on every char type in textbox?

You may try the following options:

  • You can use the JIRA ScriptRunner Scripted field 
  • You can just create a TEXT Custom field and create a jQuery in the custom field description (or any where in the page) that lets you do the autocomplete which is not a JIRA feature so you have to code it to start searching after 4 chars.
