Dependable Custom Fields

Hi,

 

We have a requirement in JIRA to define dependable custom fields which means if there are two custom fields A and B, values which are displayed and can be selected in B depends on value selected in A. 

Is such configuration possible? 

Regards,

Zeeshan Malik

That's a "cascading select list" field - there is one built into JIRA, so give that a try first!

Ok, now you've expanded on the requirement, no.  I'm afraid there isn't a field that does that.

You'll need to do something with Behaviours or write a new field type.

This can be done in one custom field "Select List (cascading)".

Thanks for your answers.

Although, using the default "Select List (cascading)" type we can display multiple values based on selected value in parent but user can only select one value from the child so eventually we end up with 1-1 pairs. Instead we want 1-n selections in way that for single value in parent field user can select multiple values in child field.

Something like:

Product 1 ->> Component A

Product 1 ->> Component B

Product 1 ->> Component C

Product 2 ->> Component A

We need a solution for selecting multiple values instead of one.
