Hide / Show custom field based on value in another field.


Is there a way I can enable one field based on value in another field.
Is there a portable way?
Looks like I have to change scripts if the solution is based on custom field id's when I move from dev -> test -> staging -> production
I have a dropdown(select) with 3 values val1, val2 and val3
If we select val1 then another field ( a text filed) need to be enabled.
It could be either enabled/disabled or hidden/shown which ever is portable.
Please let me know.

I think you've answered your own question. The documentation you've linked to is the best place to start, and there is no more "portable" way available, unless you write some extra code to work off the name of the field (which is risky because you can change the name of a field very easily)

The only issue with the above approach is that i will not work in JIRA 5.1 with inline edit enabled.

Very true. All these javascripty tricks are vanishing as Jira's interface becomes more clever...
