Use case

Validate the parent and child options of a Select List (cascading) field.


Add the Logical validator to the desired workflow transition.


Add the following expression to evaluate both options of a Select List (cascading) custom field.

%{issue.cfaaaaa} = "Parent option - Child option"

Please, replace the ID of the field code before testing the expression and note that the parent option must be separated from the child option with a hyphen "-" surrounded by two spaces.


By adding .0 or .1 to the field code of the custom field, the respective values of the parent option and child option can be accessed.

For accessing the parent option:

%{issue.cfaaaaa.0} = "Parent option"

For accessing the child option:

%{issue.cfaaaaa.1} = "Child option"
