Multple choices-cascanding list

I need to have the ability of selecting multiple choices from a cascading list.
For example:
List 1: Arsenal, Dortmund, Liverpool
List 2: England, France, Germany
Selecting Arsenal + Liverpool and England+France
I'm also using script runner which might help with that issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Yuval,

for cloud there is probably currently no App supporting such thing.

On Jira Server (on-premise) I used to implement exactly that in the past using TreeCF
unfortunately as of now this is not available for Cloud.

You would have to recheck Atlassian Marketplace if there is meanwhile any alternative App or to monitor if there will be one in the future.

Hi @Yuval Maron 

Since you have 

Instead of cascading select list you try using two multi select list and use behaviours (Since you mentioned ScriptRunner).

You will find these 2 scripts useful.

Dynamic Select

Set Behaviour Multi and Single Select Options and Value

I hope it helps.



Hey, @Ravi Sagar _Adaptavist_ 

I've tried to use the Dynamic Select script but it doesn't work ( I used 2 single select picklists). 

I even tried to manually adjust without the switch and break part : 

def optionSet1 = [
'Option 1',
'Option 2',
'Option 3',
'Option 4'


and it also didn't work

Cascade selectors can only offer a simple parent>child relationship.

To do what you are describing you would need some other type of custom field. I don't know if you're on server or cloud... if you're on cloud I'm not sure sou have any option (you might), for server there should be some options that suit your needs.

For example, you have proforma for jira... that could do something like having a "normal" selector field and a second multiple option selector filled "linked" to the first one, with the avaliable options in the second field being conditional to the currently selected option in the first one.

This is just a quick idea, but I think you should try something like this... explore the different custom fields that are out there in the wild and choose one.
