Need to cascade between two custom fields


Here is my detailed requirement,

I have two custom field namely

1."RYG" with dropdown values Red, Yellow, Green.

2. "Overall Status"

Now if i select Red in "RYG" custom field Action Required value should appear in "Overall Status" custom field.

Same way if i select Yellow -> Monitor and if i select Green -> On Track values should appear.

Is there any way way/scripts to achieve this. If you any scripts please share.

JIRA version 6.3.15


Thanks in Advance,

Hi Nandeesh,

you can use a behaviour for this purpose.Please install ScriptRunner for JIRA ( and setup the following behaviour  on RYG custom field :

FormField ryg = getFieldByName("RYG")
FormField overallStatus = getFieldByName("Overall Status")
def rygValue = ryg.getValue()
   		overallStatus.setFormValue("Action Required")
	} else if(rygValue.equals("Yellow")) {
	} else if(rygValue.equals("Green")) {
   		overallStatus.setFormValue("On Track")

Hope this helps,
