How to hide custom field options on workflow transition?

I need to see different sets of values for one select list custom field on different workflow transitions. Is there a way to hide some customfield values on workflow transition screen without javascript hacks?

You can use the behaviours plugin and write a groovy script which hides particular options of a select list customfield . You can add conditions to this script so the script will execute only for a particular workflow action i.e. transition .

refer the below doc

Mizan, thank you very much! It is a very good solution.

This code works for me

if ("Assigned".equals(getDestinationStepName())) {

FormField subSystemField = getFieldByName("SubSystem");

Map fieldOptions = [:]

fieldOptions.put ("-1", "None")

fieldOptions.putAll (["option1":"option1", "option2":"option2"]);

subSystemField.setFieldOptions(fieldOptions);

}

fieldOptions.putAll (["option1Id":"option1Name", "option2Id":"option2Name"]);

subSystemField.setFieldOptions(fieldOptions);

}

Hi M K,

No there is no option to display different values at different workflow transitions.

Here are some of the other advanced workflow properties you might be interested in.

Bhushan, thank you very much for the answer.

Unfortunately I think javascripts are the only option here.
