How does the cascading thing work? Is this using the Link feature in the
CF configuration page or is there a way of specifying sub-CFs of a CF?

I’ve attached a two-line patch against the 3.6.0 release of
lib/RT/Interface/Web.pm that addresses the cascading custom field issues

Hello all. I’ve upgraded from RT 3.4.5 to 3.6.0 (clean install directory
but the same database; custom patches applied) and I’m having some
issues with the cascading select custom fields.
Assume a category “foo” has values “bar” and “baz” in it.
If I specify category foo and then select either bar or baz, RT gets
confused and displays “foo” as the value of the field in Display.html.
This does not happen in a different custom field in a different queue.
Are things being processed out of order somewhere? I think CreateTicket
in Interface/Web.pm might be getting confused by the -Category field; it
doesn’t check for the string Value in the name of the field.
Ticket updating (cosmetic):
RT always throws the error:
User asked for an unknown update type for custom field Testfield for
when I submit Ticket/Modify.html for a ticket with a cascading selector.
It’s coming from ProcessObjectCustomFieldUpdates in Interface/Web.pm; it
looks like it’s just missing an elsif to handle the -Category form
