JIRA Label Hierarchy

In JIRA, is there anyway to set up labels with hierarchy?

Right now I use "Components" as labels, but it doesn't have hierarchy relationship.

You can create a 2 tier list using the cascading select list custom field.

@Tom Lister , do you have example for "cascading select list custom field". I don't quite get it~

I can’t find any documentation to share.

If you know how to create a custom field, Just add a custom field of type Select List (cascading).

it has two levels of entries. The first  determines the options at the second level. It’s pretty intuitive to enter the values. 

Many thanks for your reply~
