MLCS Documentation Multi Level Cascading Select (MLCS) is a add-on for the Atlassian Jira that models a new custom field. The new custom field allows you to have a cascading select with a multi level selection.


Issue creation and edit
Creating and editing an issue with a Multi level Cascade custom field value is really a simple task. During the creation of an issue is possible to select from a multi cascade list the options for the current value.


Editing a value is possible through the InLine edit feature or through the normal issue editing interface. To carry out the In line editing, simply point the mouse on the Multi Level Cascade Select value in the issue view screen and click for editing:



To use a Multi Level Cascade value to search issues, in the Issue Navigator add your MLCS custom field to the input filter for the search. A multi select cascade list will be loaded with the list of configured values:


Select the desired value and trigger the search.


1) if you select “Any” for the first level, “Any” will apply to all the levels and the search will return all the issues that have any value for our custom field. Issues with no custom field value will be excluded from the results.
2) if you select “none” for the first level,”none” will apply to all the levels and the search will return all the issues with no value selected for this field. Any issue having any not null value for the custom field will be excluded from the search results.
3) if you select a list of options that ends with a “none” value, the search results will include only the issues with the exact value of the custom field that corresponds to the list of options in input.
Example : I1= 1.1.1, I2=, I3=
Search : 1.1.1
Results : I1
4) if you select a list of options that ends with a “Any” value,the search results will include all the issues with the exact value and all the issues that contain children of that value.
Example : I1= 1.1.1, I2=, I3=
Search : 1.1.1
Results : I1-I2-I3

A MLCS field can be used in gadgets and reports, like the filter statistics or the pie chart gadgets:
