How to populate custome field in Jira?

We have a custom field called product which is a select list (single choice) and we have an another field called component which is dependent on the product field value. So when a particular product is chosen, we would like to populate the component select list and display the value. How do we do that?

I don't know it is suitable for you but you may also use Cascading Select Custom Field to do this, without using any plugin.

Thanks Denis but Cascading select column does not fit our needs. We need to keep the two field names separate. Is there a way to do this in cascading?

If you want to use behaviours, there are examples for setting valid select list options here:

So you add a behaviour to the first select, which will set the possile values for the second select.
