How to get the value of cascade custom fields using Jira API?

We are trying to use Jira API to create issues in jira and need to access cascade custom field values of a project using Jira API. Can somebody please share some code samples to achieve this?

If cfvalue is the customfield value, then bel0w steps have to be used to get each options

HashMap<String, Option> hashMapEntries = (HashMap<String, Option>) cfvalue;

Option option1 = hashMapEntries.get(CascadingSelectCFType.PARENT_KEY);

Option option2 = hashMapEntries.get(CascadingSelectCFType.CHILD_KEY);

This applies to JIRA 5.1 +

Thanks for your reply Chaithra, one more question, is there any way to set the cascade custom field value through JIRA API using the "field values" instead of "field ID's" .

Thanks once again


You have to use the IDs. This was done because users wanted to rename the field values. If the values were stored, there would be no way of changing it. You'll have to work out how to map this yourself.
