Depending fields in JIRA screens

Hi erveryone,


ist there any possibility to define depending fields in jira? F.e. if i had 2 fields:

field 1: duration in months

field 2: workers per month


f.e. if field one's value is '4' months and field two's value is '3' the value of the field 'complexity' should be 'middle'. I know that theres no option in jira but can i do this with script runner and how can i realize it?


appreciate your answers

Hi @Shippo_889,

You can perform field-dependent calculations using the Power Scripts add-on.

We've actually put together a related, quick video tutorial that walks through all the steps you need to take to set this up. And we've also included the sample code we used, so you can just copy and paste it to test for yourself.

Hope this helps!


We dont use power script in our enterprise, do you maybe have some examples for script runner?

Not out of the box. You may be able to do with scripting or there may be a plugin in the marketplace.
