Adding a drop-down custom field that lists other custom fields


I use JIRA Charting Plugin for obtaining a Trend Chart. I got a trend chart named "Created Vs Resolved Issue Chart". Now, i wish to add 2 new custom fields to that chart. The fields should be a drop down where other available custom fields (fields that display date) are listed and user chooses a custom field (say Date Created or Date Updated or Date Closed etc.).

How should I achieve this functionality in this plugin.

Plugin details:
Name: JIRA Charting Plugin
KEY: com.atlassian.jira.ext.charting
Version: 1.10

JIRA Version: 5.2

Hey there, Anandhi.

Came across something that is similar to what you are looking for but this is talking about Cascading Select instead of a Drop Down List. Have a look at this:

Perhaps you can raise a ticket to address this functionality to in the Issue Tracker? From there we can see what the devs have to say about this.

Warm regards,
