How to limit component based on selection in another field? (Two tier component)



I am aware of the subcomponents plug in. What I'm looking for is two fields next to each other. The field on the left would be a category, and based on that selection, the component field would then have its options limited to a subset. 



Basically I want a way to make my components two tiered, but nothing more. The Subcomponent plug in is a bit too complex for what I want to do. I don't need folders or things like that and I don't want the field itself to have so much complexity. I just want to give my users one field to select from a few categories, then once that is selected, they can then choose a relevant component.

Hi @Taylor_Johnson,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Have you considered using the Select List (cascading) custom field instead of component?

I want to maintain the benefits component gives me like having component lead assigned and the component based dashboard gadgets. 


I've seen this done at my old company, I just don't know how.
