Setting up select lists

Hi All,

I want to create two select lists; value of second list dependent on the selection of the first select list. I think this is possible using script runner. This is to request if someone can share a link pertaining to this, so I ca directly refer to that and do the needful.


Thanks in advance

You define one field and then you define parent values and child values. When you put the field in the screen, there will be two select fields.

Thanks, I figured it out. Much appreciated :)

You should use cascading select custom field for this functionality. 

Pardon my ignorance. 

So do I need to just define one field and then define values for the two lists?
