Make Custom Field Values Clickable Like Labels?

I have created some "Select List (Single Choice)" custom fields in a Jira project, and I would like my users to be able to click on the custom field's value in the issue view and see all issues in the project which have that particular custom field value.  (Similar to how a label works - you click on the label and get a list of all issues with that label.  However, I want to restrict the possible field values which is why I am going with a select list.)

Is there a way to set up this type of behavior for a select list?

Hi @Benjamin Martin 

You would need an add-on for this. Using ScriptRunner you can create a new scripted field that will generate the clickable url for you (with JQL for searching). Use the new field on view screen and the original field on create/view screen.


Thank you for the suggestion.  For a simpler, out-of-the-box solution, I ended up merging my custom fields and using the built-in components field instead.  That seems to be meeting my needs for now, but I will definitely look into scripted fields if my requirements change.  So thank you for pointing out that option.
