How to create custom field with matrix of options?

I want to create a field in JIRA that will let me store combinations of options for bug reports.

For example:

There is a bug on 4 different browser/OS combinations

  • Windows 7,8,10, Chrome 
  • iPad Mini iOS 8
  • OS X Safari, Chrome

The idea was to have a set of checkboxes that would let the bug creator check each option where the issue is. Is there a way to do this or is there a better way that I'm not thinking of?

 I could do a field with 20 checkboxes for each variant, but that would be a little ugly.

You can also use the Check box fields and concatenate them in a simple, read-only, text field. But I'm not sure why you can't just use checkbox.


You may also can use the Labels or Select list with multiple choices.



What do you mean by a set of checkboxes? Check the "Cascading Select" custom field and see if it will meet your needs.
