How create a scripted field that shows language depending of project in CREATING ISSUE screen

I want to show a language field that is a selector of language.

the values of the selector shall change depending of Project or UserGroup ( or whatever )

I am using JIRA 5.1.4

I am using script runner to create a scripted field "language"

question is :

has to be done in Groovy, Java, Javascript or in Velocity ? ( what is better ?)

I am trying to use javascript : (HTML option)

<!-- only a test -->

<script type="text/javascript">

pr = document.getElementById('Project');



Result it not compiles --- ( error in line 1 )


in " templates " section : can I use a macro ? like this ? ( velocity macro )

## script info


## Participating offices ::::::::::::::::::::::::::

#if ($UserGroups.contains("cyprus-agents") )


#elseif ($UserGroups.contains("denmark-agents") )


#elseif ($UserGroups.contains("ohim-knowledge-administrators") )


#else ## :::::::::::::: OHIM :::::

You can put groovy in the groovy box, or velocity in the template bit. I would try to do it in groovy alone and see how you get on. Go through some of the examples... there are too many wrong things here to call them out one by one.

ok, yes it seems that the normal way is in groovy


I Like groovy

xd, it can be done with JIRA :), without scripting :) in custom fields :) ,
