How works Hidden field in issue creation


I don't understand how works hidden field when you create a new issue on Jira Service Desk.

We have a desk for our customers to create issues. The have for exemple, to select the computer which has a problem, and then there is an automatic update of 10 fields, like the name of the computer, the user associated, phone number, and also, some informations than must be read-only, like our intervention delay, the contract... All of these are stored in a database.

I don't want our customers to see those particular fields, they must be hidden for them, BUT, filled during the automatic update, and then stored during the creation of the issue. If I hide a field, it seems to be in read-only, as it is empty each time.

Is there a way to store variable in hidden fields?

Hey Deniel,

We can do this, if we have Adaptavist Script Runner Plugin Installed.


Lets say you want to hide field B and FieldC based on the value of Field A.


Add a mappping to the Issue Type,Project and then add a field A 


In this example, its OS



Code to hide OSVersion Field based on OS field value

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def OSVersionField = getFieldByName("OS Version")
def OSField =getFieldById(getFieldChanged())
def selectedOption = OSField.getValue() as String
if ((selectedOption == null))
else if ((selectedOption == "All"))
else if ((selectedOption == "N/A"))
