Gotta say this up front, I'm very new to configuring and administering Jira so I'm still learning a lot. This may be something obvious but I just cannot find a method to do what I want here, I've searched a lot but can't find anything.
I'm looking to create a four part cascading menu. I've found the Select List (Cascading) field type, but I need more than two drop-downs.
I'd like to get it set up like so:
Location A or Location B
Major Issue categories based on Location A or B
More Specific Issue categories based on selection in List B
Exact issue based on selection in List C
So basically, drilling further down based on the selections in each consecutive drop down list.
Is this possible in Jira? If not, what would be a viable alternative?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated! If I can provide any more specifics that would help I can gladly do so.
Off-the-shelf, no, the 2 level cascading select is all you can do.
However, one great think about Jira is extensibility -
I've got a feeling there are other add-ons that you could use too. Have a look in the marketplace!
I'm going to drop this quick update here, maybe it will be able to help someone out in the future.
I managed to get around this by condensing the four drop downs into three, working like this.
Essentially making the first drop down the issue type, as before, Location A or Location B.
Then making two separate cascading drop downs, each one dependent on the selected location for Issue type.
The left drop down being the issue category, then right drop down being the specific issue. The drop down options being entirely different depending on whether A or B was selected for the Issue Type.
Basically, all that had to be done was make the first drop down the Issue Type, and condense drop downs 3 and 4 into the second drop down for each cascading list.
It actually ended up working better than four drop downs would have I believe. It's less congested this way.
