Handle/modify fields on fly on the native create issue page in Jira from jira server plugin Edited

Hi there.

I'm new in developing something for Jira. Spent a lot of time for documentation reading, but still didn't find an answer.


Task: During the new issue creation in jira we should have a possibility to show values in drop-down menu (single select) based on some conditions like values selected in upstairs drop-down menus.  

So is the any chance to create a jira server plugin on java to operate with values in fields on Create new Issue page?

I can guarantee additionals +100500 to your karma for links with examples  :) 


I've seen some option to do it from a script-runner, but a customer wants to make it from the native plugin with logic on front-end (like we would have in case of ScriptRunner).

Many thanks in advance!

Hi @Eugene_Ts ,

I think the developer community will be a better place to ask for this kind of question.

Have you looked at the cascading select custom field type?

Thanks! I remember reading something about it but didn't get that it may be suitable for me. I'm looking for the way to handle the native drop-down to keep all already created issues working without any changes. The problem here is that I still must have all those drop-down menus separately to be able to search by them. 
Here is just some example
1. "Customer" drop-down.
2.  "Project drop-down" - based on what customer was selected, we should show what type of projects are shown for the particular customer
3. Country drop-down - based on what customer and project ere selected we should show what countries are allowed be to selected for this particular case
4. etc

So all those drop-down menus must be shown separately as separate independent fields, but values are shown in fields below are related on values selected above
