Search value of cascadind select field - how to?

Hi All,

we have a cascading select field. How can I search for a first level value? I mean the main category.

Thanks in advance,

Hey Rumi,

I had a similar question once...

It should be:

customfield_11111 in cascadeOption("1st Level","2nd Level")

Hey, I had the same problem and I still haven't tried to do that... I always search like customfield = 'value' and this works fine but for the 1st level only, never try the 2nd level...

Just in case you have some documentation about all the Advance Search on Jira:


All the below mentioned options will work, if you want to search for 1st level option in a Cascade Select Field.

"CustomField Name" in cascadeOption("1st Level Option")

"CustomField Name" in ("1st Level Option")

"CustomField Name" = "1st Level Option"
