How to populate a custom field based on another field’s selection

Hi!
This is a question about how to populate a custom field based on another field’s selection.

Specifically, we have to populate a user selector custom field based on a group selector’s selection. We want to set both values on creating the issue.

What we really want is to populate the user selector field with the members of the group selected in the group selector field just the group be selected.

Is there a way to do this without using JavaScript code?
Thanks!

Hey Agustin!

Sadly the only way I know how to accomplish this is through Javascript; there isn't a built-in function to allow this currently.  

Thankfully it's pretty easy Javascript!  Take a look at this documentation and see if it points you in the right direction.

Good luck!

Thank you again, Cody. It was kind of you to reply.

No problem at all!  Happy to help.  laugh
