Is it possible to populate a dropdown box based upon the selected value in another dropdown?
For example, we have multiple software projects and each has its own distinct attributes like build versions and subcomponents.
Right now we use separate projects for each software system and it is a bit of a management nightmare since users enter their issue in a public "master" project and our support department then moves those into the appropriate software system-specific project where they are worked on and managed.
We would like to use a single JIRA project for all of our software projects but each system has different build numbers, different subcomponents, etc.
Thus, if software system A is selected which has build numbers 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3, we would like the build dropdown to be populated with those build numbers and not with any other system's build numbers. Likewise, the subsystems/components dropdown should be populated with the components of that software system.
Can we do this? How?
I guess this is not completely achievable in the way you want. A close solution will be a "Cascading Select" custom field, even though this still needs you to manage the sync between the project versions and the values inside this cascading select.
Another option is to use the Behaviours Plugin and allow the user to use free text fields for entering the Component and Version and add a server side validation to check whether these values are actually okay or not.
This might be a lighter-weight solution than a plugin.
