how to hide or show a field without using any code?

I am using JIRA 5.2 version. Now I would like to show/hide a test filed based on the Selected value in the above list.

Is there any way/ setting that enables this functionality? I want to avoid to add JavaScript code for this.

 

Thanks

Not unless there is a plugin in the marketplace. JIRA doesn't offer that feature.

Use the quisapps "field security" addon, or the script-runner/behaviour plugin (although that's not quite what it is intended for, and you will need some coding).

Plugin Dynamic Forms show/hide fields depends on value in select field (dynamic select customfield). It is very easy to use. I think this is exactly what you are looking for. There is a version 1.3 for JIRA 5.2.

I am adding below code in the Description of the Custom Field. If I put alerts, I could see them when the change is being saved but when I open a New Creat Issue screen, it neither show alerts nor the functionality is working nor I could see the JavaScript code added into the view source code. Please advice: (I am using version 5.2.1) <script> AJS.$(document).ready(function(){ AJS.$("select[name=customfield_15366]").change(function () { var length = document.getElementsByName("customfield_15366")[0].options.length; var optionObjs = document.getElementsByName("customfield_15366")[0].options; var flag = 0; for(i=0;i <length;i++){ if(optionObjs[i].selected && ((optionObjs[i].text == "Other"))){ flag = 1; } } if (flag == 1) { document.getElementById("customfield_15552").style.display = "block"; } else { document.getElementById("customfield_15552").style.display = "none"; document.getElementsByName("customfield_15552")[0].value = ""; } }); });</script>

Could you please suggest any plug-in for JIRA 5.2 version?
