I can't check the value of a checkboxes using Live fields as the argv for the field is always null (unless multiple values are checked in which case I have null|null).

If you are using Jira Cloud it is not possible.

If you are using Jira Server it is possible with 3rd party add-on like ScriptRunner, this feature not exist built in with Jira.

Please let us know which Jira you have.
