jjupin how to access customfield values while still on create screen


we need to show/hide a custom field on CREATE SCREEN based on value of other customfield.

our driving customfield is a Radio Buttons based on its value we would like to show/hide other fields.

im trying to implement this with routines lfwatch/lfShow/lfHide

my problem is how do i access the current value of the radioButton field?

the radio button field is Gender = "customfield_11401"

i already tried  argv["Gender"] , argv["customfield_11401"] but it doesnt seem to work.

Hi Eric,


You need to use the lfInstantHook routine to access the fields on create screen. Here you can find more details about it:


lfInstantHook({"Gender"}, "Hook.sil");



lfWatch("Gender", { "Gender" }, "Watch.sil");


// use argv["Gender"] to access the CFs referenced in the Hook.sil lfWatch.





Hi Silviu, since i want to monitor the value change on customfield Gender, I combined lfwatch/lfInstanthook routines. thanks a lot. eric

Yes, that's the full "recipe". I have updated the answer to better reflect the LF flow if anyone else needs it. Have fun with Live Fields :)

Hi  Silviu,

The solution is working but If I am creating the ticket on new tab the field is not disabling 

Sounds like something is not working properly. What's your JIRA version and browser? Alexandra, can you have a look on this?


Indeed, this should not happen. We haven't made changes in live fields in the last period, so, please tell us the JIRA/JJUPIN versions. 

Thank you,
