Show/hide field in form depending on another selection


I am not exactly a Groovy expert. Nevertheless, I am trying my hand at getting this to work. I have a field for users to provide a business justification for the selection of a certain oracle role. I only want the field oracleJust to pop up in the create screen when field  oracleRole (a multi select list) is not empty.

I have a Behavior configured for the same field that is defined in my script as oracleRole, with an initializer function set as below:

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
FormField oracleJust = getFieldById("customfield_17274")

And the inline script set as below:

import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField
FormField oracleRole = getFieldById("customfield_10531")
FormField oracleJust = getFieldById("customfield_17274")
if (oracleRole.getFormValue() == "FIN-FA_Asset Inquiry") {

I have the behaviour mapped to the correct project. When I navigate to the create screen of that project, the initializer is doing it's job (oracleJust is hidden) but the inline is not. When I select a value from oracleRole, the dependent field is not showing. What am I doing wrong?

Where did you set the script under the line "And the inline script set as below"? Usually the answer is "log the value and result in your code":

log.warn "Log results (Hello mom!):\nOracle Role: ${oracleRole.getFormValue()}\nComparison results: ${oracleRole.getFormValue() == 'FIN-FA_Asset Inquiry'}"

I usually use the "toLowerCase()" String method as well, just to be a little easy going. :p
