This widget could not be displayed.

Which version of JIRA? Try giving the option ID instead of value and see if it helps.


Hi, i tried by giving the option Id for the parent select list. But I have no idea how to get the Id for the child select list box.

The version is Jira 4.2 and i am using SOAP API.
