How to populate values in one custom field based on the value of another custom field?

Hi,

This is what I want to achieve:

  • I have 2 fields.
  • When I select A in 1st field the 2nd field should populate P,Q,R
  • When I select B in 1st field the 2nd field should populate X,Y,Z

How do I achieve this.?

Thanks.

I don't understand what you mean by "when I select", when does this happen? When you're searching the issue via JQL?

To clarify,

There are 2 single select dropdown fields.

When A is selected from 1st dropdown,  2nd dropdown field should populate P,Q,R

When B is selected from 2nd dropdown,  2nd dropdown field should populate X,Y,Z

I don't think that feature exist in JIRA. However you might be able to achieve similar outcome by setting the value on issue creation using workflow post function / validators. Have a look at workflow add-ons listed in marketplace.

There's also developer doc to write your own post function: https://developer.atlassian.com/static/connect/docs/latest/modules/jira/workflow-post-function.html (cloud hosting)

You can create it by using behaviors script.Behaviors appears in the column of add-ons when you install scriptrunner .

You can use the Select List Cascading as in image attached. the second dropdown will popup depending on the first Dropdown selectionCapture.PNG
