How to show / hide customfield based on customfield select list on create


Im currently creating a troubleshooting workflow in JIRA and have issues hiding some field that are non require if a certain field is false.


I would like: 


If my customfield_1 = Yes

then customfield_2 would appear on the create screen


Is there anyway to do this?


many thanks,

Hi Pon,

Have you tried to use plugin Dynamic Forms? There are several customfields (Dynamic select, multiselect, cascading select, checkboxes and radiobuttons) which can show/hide other customfields.

Here you can find documentation:

I hope I've helped you.

Best Regards

Thank Daniel, 


Dynamic form works well! smile

Hi Pon,

The short answer is no. There is no way to update the screens live. They are designed (add/remove fields) and then assigned to the project for specific types of issue.

You can add both fields in. When you create the issue don't fill in the customfield2 is not needed. Then when you view it later, if a custome field doesn't have a value you won't see it on the screen even if you have added it to the screen.

Thank you for your answer. 


I kinda found a way to do it via placing html in the description box where The customfield2 would disappear but i cant get it to appear again
