Answer

You can use change event on your select-box . Inside this get value of selected option using $(this).val() this will return you array so use for-loop to iterate through value and show options where value matches in second dropdown . Lastly refresh your selectpicker to update changes .

Demo Code :

$('#id1').on('change', function(e) {
  var values = $(this).val()
  $("#id2 option").hide() //hide all options
  $('#id2').selectpicker('deselectAll') //if want to remove all selcted optn
  if (values.length > 0) {
    for (var i = 0; i < values.length; i++) {
      //show where value is same..
      $("#id2 option[value=" + values[i] + "]").show()
    }
  } else {
    $("#id2 option").show() //show all options 
  }
  $('#id2').selectpicker('refresh'); //refresh selctpicker
});
