Custom field (check boxes) automatically change with reporter

Umar Maroof December 25, 2022

I have a Issue type where different reporters create issues and in that issue type I have Check boxes custom field where different option apperas.

Can I Change the  option of these check boxes according to the reporter.

Like if Repoter A wants to create the issue the options in that custom field are different 

and if Reporter B want to create the issue the options appear different in that custom field (check boxes)

I have tried based on the issuetype, the checkboxes option to change. Please see the below code. I think you can easily modify this code for reporter as well.


def cf = getFieldById("customfield_xxxx") //Checkboxes fieldid
def issuetype = getIssueContext().getIssueType().getName()

switch (issuetype) {
    case "Epic":
    case "Story":

Hi Umar

If this is for Server, you can use Behaviour from ScriptRunner.

If this is for Cloud, unfortunately this does not comes natively with Jira Cloud. Do note that ScriptRunner Behaviour is also not available in Jira Cloud and your requirement can't be achieved via Automation.

ProForma: Forms & Checklist for Jira app should meet your requirements. However, Cloud version of this app is yet to be available.

I would recommend you to change the way you set up the field. You can use cascading select list. This way, you can generalize it and set the options based on roles and not specific users.

Hope this helps.

Hi @Umar Maroof,

Like @Nic Brough -Adaptavist- suggested, it is not a good practice to have options change by the user. 

But, if your requirement still needs this change, I would suggest to check 'ScriptRunner' documentation and use 'Behaviors'.

Hope this helps.

Jira does not have fields that change options by user (it's not a good thing to do in a collaboration tool)
