How do I create a cascading select field so that both parent and child can be used in a filter?

We would like to create a cascade select field for Platform/Development Team. We also want to be able to filter on either field.


Project = x AND Platform = y AND Development Team = z


Project = x AND Development Team = z

Is there a way to do this in JIRA v5.2.5? If not, does anyone know of a plugin that will do this?

Yes, you can do it. it is easier to do it in Basic Search View but in Advanced view, you will do something like this:

cfName in cascadeOption("Ist Select Value", "2nd Select Value")

Hi All,

We are using the cascade select field in our filter, we would like to know is there a way we could use multiple parent options in the query.

Parent Option : A has (1,2,3 has child options)

Parent Option B has (4,5,6 has child options)

Parent Option C has (7,8,9 child options)

Parent Option D has (10,11,12 child options)

We are trying to achieve we need results of Parent Option A and C with all the child Options.

When we have seen in the link provided above, we see there is no option of having multiple Parent options. Any information provided will be very helpful.
