Groovy automation (Scripted field)

I have two custom field

1--- MLCS field with Options

A ---> i

B ---> ii

2--- Multiselect Field with options

a, b, c, d, e, f


While creating issue if I select

B for field 1 & [a,b,c] for field 2

Though a scripted field I want to add [e] as a selected option along with [a,b,c]

so that final options selected in field 2 will be [a,b,c,e]

While in other case where A is selected values should remain as it is


Thanks in advance,

Use a listener for this. Script fields should be used to show values derived from the issue's fields, or other issues or whatever, but should not modify the itself.

Thanks Jamie


I am facing issue mainly when trying to set values for multiselect field along with existing values.

If I see in the log values are getting updated but they are not being displayed on issue

or not getting updated on issue.
