Not without coding or tampering of JIRA code!

Depends. If you want to show the existing custom fields in 2 rows, you will need to tamper with code which I don't recommend. A good option will be to create another custom field which has the look and feel you need and either store details in the same field or use that field as a proxy to capture details for the existing fields.

Does it require extensive coding? Have you tried it?

Hi Jobin,

"A good option will be to create another custom field which has the look and feel you need and either store details in the same field"

Which custom field type are you referring to?

Thanks.

I meant creating a new custom field type in a plugin!

Does market place not have a plugin that can provide this feature?

I haven't one but there are a lot of plugins out there which I haven't tried out. You should definitely do a search before developing one yourself.

If both fields are select you can use cascade select. Otherwise you can do this by writing css and javascript in description of custom field.
