Dynamic Display of Values in CustomFields

Hi All,

Can we display the values of custom fields dynamically?

The requirement is :

On Clicking a transition, a screen containing a Select List and Mutlicheckbox field should appear where the values of the fields should be loaded dynamically.

Example: The select list should contain all the linked issues from the current issue and on selecting any one of the values from select list, the components in the selected issue should be displayed in the multiple checkbox.

This can be achieved by JS and REST.

Make a REST call from JS and update the select list.

Once again on 'onchange' event call REST to bring the components and update the screen using multiple check box.

Hi Nitram,

Thanks for your response. Apart from the options added explicitly to the custom Fields, will it take the other externally configured values?

Do you have any sample code or link to achieve this?




Look this code, take it as a example.This is how you need to make a REST call from JS.The below function which takes a argument data is the callback function.

you can get linked issues, components and once you get the response take it and update.

AJS.$("#customfield").change(function() {
jQuery.getJSON(baseurl + '/rest/api/latest/issue/' + issuekey', function(data) {
// callback function , create your logic to handle the get request data
