Showing all values in SelectList

Hi all,

how can I get all the available values in the SelectList for Components & Labels.

Now only a few values will be displayed. Only when I start the input the system suggests a given value if it is in the list available. For that I have to know which values are available and I do not have the complete list where I can choose a value.

We are using JIRA 6.1.

Thanks for any answer.

Could you explain the problem a bit more? The best answer I can give depends on whether it's a "human wants to see the whole lot" or "I'm coding a plugin/script and need the list" or "I'm doing something in javascript"


thanks for the answer.

The problem is, the human wants to see the whole lot in a select list.

Do you have any suggestions how to achieve this.

Thanks for a further answer.


Ok, that's nice and clear. The lists are limited simply to avoid cognitive overload, but if your humans need a really long list, you have the option of editing the code that is limiting the list. The data is all there, you should just need to tweak the .vm file that is only showing you the top part of it.

Hi Nic,

thanks for the answer.

But I do not know which .vm-file I have to alter to extend the selected list for

  • components
  • labels

Please let me know the filenames and the action I have to do.

Thanks a lot.


In the files


there is an option called "maxInlineResultsDisplayed". To always show the complete list of components you need to delete/comment out this option. Labels should always be shown as a complete list.
