Hello,

I'm attempting to setup some direct issue creation links (using : How to create issues using direct HTML links in Jira Server | Jira | Atlassian Documentation)

One of the fields I want to set a value in is a cascading select list, this has 2 'levels' of value. The JSON looks like: 

(I've cut the URL out) 

        "customfield_12412": {
            "self": "<URL>/jira/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/28378",
            "value": "CHANGE",
            "id": "28378",
            "disabled": false,
            "child": {
                "self": "<URL>/jira/rest/api/2/customFieldOption/32505",
                "value": "UPDATE",
                "id": "32505",
                "disabled": false
            }
        },
If I send;
<URL>/jira/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?pid=14700&issuetype=11502&customfield_12412=28378
I can get the first value in but, not the second as it's not got it's own field ID (that I can see) 
Anyone got any ideas on this one?
