Create a Jira multi select field which loads a list of options from REST API dynamically

Hello All,

I have 4 different Jira instances. I use one Jira instance to manage project changes. So I need a way to get all projects names from 3 different instances into one.

Ex scenario: User selects the "Instance A" from the Jira Instance field & I want to make a REST call/mysql query to that instance and get a list of projects & display that in the Jira Project/s field which is a multi select field. 

Jira Instance: 

    Instance A

    Instance B

    Instance C

Jira Project/s:

    Project AA

    Project AB

    Project AC


I tried using nfeed. With that I need to have 4 different fields for each instance because one REST call per instance can only be mapped to one field. I cannot associate one field with multiple data sources. 

Anyone done something similar ? Any ideas on how to get all these data into one field ?

Any thoughts & advise appreciated.



As of now we are using a text field to capture this project info but we need a dropdown field to capture these & report on them. We have so many projects in each instance and we do not want to create a custom field and manually manage them.


Thanks in advance.

Dear @Andrian Fernandopulle,

query all three instances for the list of their projects. Then rebuild you multiple select list on you target instance with "Custom Fields++", which will allow you to set and modify the options of that field. Wrap a cron around rebuilding the options twice a day.

So long
