Jira : Dynamic population of customfields on screens / forms based on value of another custom field (Drop down)

Hi Fellow atlassians,

I m trying to find out a way to dynamically populate the custome fields based on value of another custom field (Drop down)

Scenario: I have drop down with two values 1> producer 2> consumer

and two text fields 1> producer channel 2> consumer channel

I want to populate the test fields based on value of drop down instead of having all three fields.

so if user selects "producer" from the dropdown only "producer channel" text field will be displayed on screen and consumer field will not be displayed on screen and vice versa.

Following question is slightly different than my question:

try with this script by changing custom field ids as per your instance

<script type="text/javascript"> 
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {	
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e, context) {	
function  callChangeFunction(){
		// dropdown custom field change function
	$("#customfield_10571").change(function() {
	function showHidField(){
		//drop down field selected value	
		var dropDownFieldval = $.trim($("#customfield_10571 :selected").text());
			//test field1
			//test field2
		if(dropDownFieldval == 'producer'){			
		}if(dropDownFieldval == 'consumer'){
