Hint: A cascading select is not the right solution. 

You can use something like the following behaviour, as an initialiser IIRC:

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponent
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.config.ConstantsManager
import com.onresolve.jira.groovy.user.FormField

ProjectComponentManager projectComponentManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectComponentManager()
ConstantsManager constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()

def pid = getIssueContext().getProjectId()
def components = projectComponentManager.findAllForProject(pid)
assert components*.name.containsAll(["Comp1", "Comp2", "Comp3"]) // must have these components

def Map issueTypeToComponents = [
    "Bug": ["Comp1", "Comp2"],
    "Task": ["Comp3"],
];

FormField formComponent = getFieldById("components")

def issuetypeId = issueContext.getIssueTypeId()

String issueType = constantsManager.getIssueTypeObject(issuetypeId).getName()

if (issueTypeToComponents.keySet().contains(issueType)) {
    List relevantComponents = issueTypeToComponents[issueType] as List
    def Map fieldOptions = [:]

    components.findAll { ProjectComponent pc ->
        relevantComponents.contains(pc.getName());
    }.each {ProjectComponent pc ->
        fieldOptions.put(pc.getId() as String, pc.getName())
    }

    formComponent.setFieldOptions(fieldOptions)
}

Getting the following error while trying to save behavior:

Compilation failure: startup failed: Script1.groovy: 29: unable to resolve class ProjectComponent @ line 29, column 20. }.each {ProjectComponent pc -> ^ Script1.groovy: 27: unable to resolve class ProjectComponent @ line 27, column 32. components.findAll { ProjectComponent pc -> ^ 2 errors

updated my answer

Script does not work as an initialiser (no errors in log file)

Script works when mapped to the issue type field with some issues.

  • If I change the issue type it would no validate the current selected component.
  •  Components with spaces don't show in the list.

 

Hint: Cascading field.

Thanks Jamie, too much coding. Hope it helps Aron. Thanks.
