Is it possible to have subgroups for checkbox options ?

Suppose I have a checkbox custom field "Tests", it following options:

[ ] Test A

[ ] Test B

[ ] Test C

[ ] Test D

[ ] Test E

[ ] Test F

...until test Z (Note it is a long list)

 

Users asked me to implement options levels like this (indented):

[ ] Group 1

        [ ] Test A

        [ ] Test B

[ ] Group 2

        [ ] Test C

        [ ] Test D

        [ ] Test E

        [ ] Test F

...etc

 

So users can select the main groups, and all group items will be marked by default to make the selection faster, and (very important) to visualize each group label.

If possible it could be collapsed:

I found an example:

Is it possible to customize the checkbox field using scripts to have this behaviour?

Is there some addon for this kind of checkbox field ?

You are referring to a "Select List (Cascading Select)".

No.. it is about ckeckbox field

Did you find a solution for this? I was looking answer for a similar Question.

I'm not sure why answer was downvoted since it's just a rhetorical question.

Anyway, grouping checkbox in JIRA is not a default feature. You can either:

  • Search the marketplace for any add-ons that do this
  • Create your own add-on
  • Use JavaScript/JQuery to customize the checkbox view which is very hard to do and very hard to maintain
