With Profields you can create list fields in cascade, their values will depend on the option you have selected on its father.
Step 1: Create or edit the field that will be used as a "father"
- Go to the Profields menu on the Jira navigation bar and click Fields.
- Click on the Create fields button. Then List and choose the right type of list you want. In this tutorial, we'll use single choice.
- Set the values, like any other List.
Step 2: Create or edit a "child" list
Repeat the same process of the previous step but don't type any option yet.
Click on the options button in the top right corner
Select the option Depend on another list
Below select the "father" list.
Type the values for every "father" list option, in this case for every country will have its cities.
Step 3: Be sure they are on the same layout
Both fields should be on the same Layout to be used on the projects. Visit this page to know more about how to config Layouts: Creating layouts and project fields
Step 4: Cascade fields are ready
Your cascade fields are ready to be used.
Go to the Project Fields screen under the Project Section in JIRA

The "child" list will show the values available according to the one selected in the father.
