Mapper

This page provides information on configuring Select Options Mapper.

Select Options Mapper custom field allows you to create mapping between other custom field’s value and text or group, user, project (all provided from dictionary). It supports select, cascade select and Dynamic Select. For example, show a responsible person based on the selected department.

Warning

Select Options Mapper is a read-only custom field, so it should be added only to screens that are used for view issue. It won’t be visible on the Create screen.
