Dynamic jira custom field list

I am looking to implement JIRA for project managment in my company. We are already using JIRA for defect tracking, and would like to extend its use futher.

We have create a new project and screen with some custom fields. However, we would like to now create two new custom fields: one project and the other call version. The project field will be standard select list of the projects in jira, but for the version, we would like to be able to dynamically list the versions that are available in the project that we have select.

If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated.

That's not possible without any code - you're effectively trying to select versions from other projects, which is nonsense to Jira - the current issue belongs to a project, and the version field therefore lists the current projects versions.

You'll need to write a field that can do that dynamic selection, or select from the whole set of versions (I'd be tempted to implement this as a cascading select style field - first list populated by project, second by version. But you'll need to store the data as strings because the versions and projects can be changed, you can't just link to the version objects)

If you can explain why you need this, maybe get some good ideas without using your described methods.
