Show select list custom field value based on other Select list field value Script Runner - Behaviour

Hi Guys,

I am not a coder so I need some help here.

We are on Jira 8.5.x. We have a requirement. There are two select list custom fields. 
Suppose Field1and Field2.

If I am selecting "A" from Field1 then Field2 should show these options: "Value1", "Value2" 
And if I am selecting "B" from Field1 then Field2 should show: "Value3", "Value4"

I tried and created the below code but it is not working.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.RESOLUTION
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.optionsManager
def Field2 = getFieldById("customfield_10500")
def Field1 = getFieldById("fieldchanged")

def Field2Value = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10500")
def Field1Value = Field1.getValue()
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(Field2Value)[0]

if (Field1.value == "UC") {
def allowedField2 = options.findAll { it.value in ["Value1", "Value2"] }
} else if ((Field1.value == "DevOps")) {
def allowedField2 = options.findAll { it.value in ["Value3", "Value4"] }

Hi @durga_panda 

I applied your script to my local environment but there are some error messages, and I didn’t check the reason causing them.

Here's my sample script that should fulfill your requirement:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager

def Field1 = getFieldById("customfield_10200") // parent select list 1
def Field2 = getFieldById("customfield_10500")// child select list 2 (Depending Field1's value)

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()

def customField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(Field2.getFieldId())
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext())
def options = optionsManager.getOptions(config)

Map fieldOptions1 = [:]
fieldOptions1.put ("-1", "None")
fieldOptions1.putAll (["1":"A1","2":"A2"])

Map fieldOptions2 = [:]
fieldOptions2.put ("-1", "None")
fieldOptions2.putAll (["4":"B1","5":"B2"])

String Value1 = (String) Field1.getValue() //check the parent select list value

if (Value1 == "A") //if the value is A
else if (Value1 == "B") //if the value is B
{ Field2.setFieldOptions(fieldOptions2)


 Could you please give it a try and let me know if it works for you?

HI @Tiong Lih Yao 

Thank you for this code. This code did not gave me any error however it is not working for me.

maybe I am doing something wrong.

Map fieldOptions1 = [:]
fieldOptions1.put ("-1", "None")
fieldOptions1.putAll (["1":"A1","2":"A2"])

can you please help me if i am understanding below correctly? is it
fieldOptions1.putAll (["Option_ID1":"Option_value1","Option_ID2":"Option_Value2"])

Hi @durga_panda

Glad to know it works for you now:) Yes, it's just like the ID, key for the option's value.

I hope it resolves your queries.

Could you please mark it as an accepted answer, please?

It might be helping those looking for the solution.

I was actually pasing this into initliazer, instead code on field behaviour worked. Below is my version of code which is working too


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FieldBehaviours;
import groovy.transform.BaseScript;
@BaseScript FieldBehaviours fieldBehaviours;

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager();
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager();
def Field2 = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_10500")
def Field2_config = Field2.getRelevantConfig(getIssueContext());
def Field2_options = optionsManager.getOptions(Field2_config);
def Field2field = getFieldById("customfield_11111");
def Field1field = getFieldById("customfield_22222");
def Field1Value = Field1field.getValue()

def AllowedValue = [ ]

if (Field1Value == "Value1"){
AllowedValue = ["X1", "X2", "X3"]
} else if (Field1Value == "Value2"){
AllowedValue = ["A1", "A2", "A3"]

Field2field.setFieldOptions(Field2_options.findAll{it.value in (AllowedValue)})
