Custom dropdown field with DisplayName and Value

Mattias Kallvi Oct 18, 2016

Hi,

I have a question about custom fields in Jira. I would like a custom drop down field where I can specify DisplayName and Value. For example:
DisplayName          Value
Development         1000
HR                         1200
Production             1401

I would like it to be possible to search on both DisplayName and Value. The Value should be unique but not DisplayName.

Anyone who knows if this is possible? If an add-on is needed, thats no problem. However, I don't really want to write it myself smile

Maybe cascade field could help you.

No, that won't work. I need something like a User Picker where you can search for the User ID and the User Display Name. However, these are not really users, they are more like units within the Company. I guess one solution would be to add these as users to a specisfic Group and then use a User Picker that only search in that Group.
