How to change issue type with Javascript

I have to update the issue type autoly basing on the customfield value which is chosed by user.

And user can not see the issue type field, we hide it.

Now we are fasing a problem:

the issue type field could be changed, but the screen not changed.

Even we tried to trigger the change event on issue type field, the screen still not changed.

Can anyone tell me how to trigger the screen change action?

This is not working:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

$("#issuetype-field").val("developing task").trigger('change');

This widget could not be displayed.

Hi Ma,

You can trigger an update to the issue selector by triggering an event with the id of the issue type you want to switch to, e.g.:

jQuery("#issuetype").trigger("set-selection-value", "10101");

If you have a commercial JIRA license, take a look at `jira-components/jira-webapp/src/main/webapp/includes/ajs/select/SingleSelect.js` for more events that you can use to manipulate the selector.



Thanks so muck for your comments, i will try it later.
