Using out-of-the-box Jira:


If all applications are modeled in a single project you can achieve this with a Cascading Select Custom Field

If every application has it's own project you can use one Select List with multiple field contexts

Hello Gaston,

thank you for your help.

In fact, i am not sure that the cascading select custom field is suffisant.

In jira, we have many projets defined, but here, the need is for one of them.

I want to qualify my Bug with different values for the application, the version and the functionnality where it has been found.

But to limit the values, i would like to propose a limited list depending of the application selected first.

i don't know how to implement it (i am really newbie with jira)...

tks again for your time.

Did you try with versions and the affected and fix version standard fields?


well, in my understanding, the release contains for us a list off applications, having different version (corresponding to our sprints)


in ex, Release 3 contains 3 applications, A, B, and C.

Each application have the own version.

A1.1, A1.2

C5.6 C6.0

Yes, that's correct.

You can always have the possibility to develop a custom field if you're on server or use some plugin like behaviours from scriptrunner to filter the values of a field based on another but i'm trying to find solutions without adding too much complexity.
