hi there i know this might be a lil bit tricky but i was requested to create a new custom field that only shows up if a specific selection is made from our Severity field.
sure there is a cascading select list field type but that is not providing the solution i need.
Severity field has values...like sev1 to sev5
when the user selects sev1 or sev2 a new field should be shown wich is a text field where to enter some impacts...
Email us at "jira-support at kepler-rominfo.com" explaining what you need, and maybe we can push it into the right direction.
There's not a lot to say really - I've worked in a couple of places that wrote plugins to do it. Storage formats were a bit of a pain, but the cleanest one I saw was basically cribbed directly from the code for the cascading-select with some tweaks to the .vm to show/hide the second half of the field as required.
I can't share the code, as it was all internal stuff (and I didn't copy it, as it wasn't mine!)
My instinct would be if I could limit it to only one transition, like on "create," that I needed this functionality, that I could hack this together by creating a step in the middle. Then using a plugin with a conditional postfunction, if the severity = X, then it transitions to another status with the screen with the custom field you want. You could create several different transitions to handle different severities.
This is a clunky solution but the only thing I can think of that wouldn't require coding.
