Dynamically populate options in customfield type plugin (velocity template) on click of a button

Hi All,

I have a text field - user id  and i have created custom field type field plugin(Generic CF Type) - User Name


My requirement is to dynamically populate the options of a custom field User Name based on the value of a custom field User Id on click of a button Search available in the edit  velocity template of User Name field.

The custom field type plugin module populates the values on time of load of the screen,but not at run time when the user id is changed and search button is clicked. The search button should call a method in Java class which returns list of String objects.


I have read the following post -https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/153603 but could not find the solution.

This widget could not be displayed.

I have achieved this exposing REST service in the plugin and do an ajax call of the REST service in velocity file of that customfield
