This widget could not be displayed.

It can be done easily using "Boolean validator with math, date-time or text-string terms" of JIRA Workflow Toolbox plugin.

You should use a boolean expression like:

%{nnnnn} = "Required_Value_For_Select_List" IMPLIES (%{mmmm.0} != null AND %{mmmm.1} != null)


  • %{nnnnn} is the field code for Select List custom field
  • %{mmmm} is the field code for Cascading Select custom field.

That boolean expression requires that both levels (0 and 1) of Cascading Select field are set when Select List custom field is "Required_Value_For_Select_List".

If you want a more detailed explanation, please give me more details of your particular use case.

Best regards,
