I need a "Cascading Select" custom field (2 levels). It should be populated with a a few hundred distinct values as options and I need to automate the creation and maintenance in some way. I have the values in a xls, is there some way to create the options using Jelly or another scripting language?
I want to generate the code from the xls sheet ...
Jelly supports the creation of cascading select - there's an example of how you nest the options on the jelly tags page at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Jelly+Tags
p.s. Hennings is right too. You should use whichever you're more comfortable with - both work and both are neat, relatively simple and lend themselves to adding lots of options from a spreadsheet.
