Create a cascading picklist between two picklists fields.
Have you ever wanted to have a picklist show only subset of values depending on the value of another field? For example maybe you two fields to track a release, major and minor release. The minor release values are tied to the major release values. In the example below, if the major release is "Blue" then only show the Blue minor releases. And when the major release of "Red" is selected, then only show the Red minor releases.
How does it work?
Create the custom fields for both the parent (major release) and child (minor release) picklists
Add all the possible values for the minor release. This should include values for both Blue and Red releases
Open the "Cascading List" hub in project settings. From here you can configure the JSON rules that drive how the cascading picklist would work. Below is the sample for Major and Minor releases.
Go create a new Feature work item to see it in action. Select "Release Blue" and notice how only the blue values are displayed in the Minor Release field. Select "Release Red" and you will only see the Red minor release items.
Setup cascading picklist between two fields
Work item forms with many extensions installed can delay the loading of the cascading picklist extension. Therefore the child/parent relationship may not be visible for several seconds. If that happens, we recommend that you remove any non-essential extensions from the form.
