AJAX-Style Search results are hidden behind custom field in basic search


Using the Database Values Plugin I have created an AJAX-style search which returns results ok on the issue type screens. (There are some occasions when nothing is returned but this may be performance-related)

However, when we use this on the Basic Search, the results can be hidden behind the custom field box in the UI and there is no way to select the result. 

A workaround is to use the internal ID of the value in the Advanced Search, but this is not really acceptable for most end users.

Another issue is that most of the time the AJAX search returns no results. It doesn't seem to even kick off a request. When inspecting the browser there is no network activity when typing into the box.

Any ideas on how to resolve these issues? 

  • Performance (inconsistent results i.e. no results)
  • Results are hidden behind UI in Basic Search (See below)


Using JIRA Version. 7.4.2 

Database Values Plugin Version: 4.1

I've resolved this by updating the search.type from '1' to a '0'. 

This updates the search to a LIST in the basic search, but still maintains AJAX-style on the create/edit forms.
