@BaseScript FieldBehaviours behaviours

def cf = getFieldByName("Some Field")

def components = getFieldById("components").getValue() as List<ProjectComponent>
cf.setHidden(components.any { == "web"})

thank you a lot.

problem solved

As an admin, goto Administration -> issues -> customfields -> copy link location from the edit button

it should look something like this: https://your.jira.address./secure/admin/EditCustomField!default.jspa?id=10101

There is the ID in the URL.

thank you a lot.

Problem solved:

init script

def s = getFieldByName("customField1");


validation script

def s = getFieldById(fieldChanged);
def d = getFieldByName("customField1");
if (s.getValue().get(0).getName().equals("web"))

But its not correct, can anyone help me ?
