How can I populate a custom field's select list from a MS-SQL table with JIRA in the cloud?

We have JIRA in the cloud and have a custom field with a select list of over 800 entries and growing.  I was wondering if there was a way to populate this table daily based on a table in our database?  I find lots of answers for stand alone systems, but need an answer for the cloud solution.

This widget could not be displayed.

It requires code to provide a field type that can read another database. 

On Cloud:

  • You can't install the types of add-on that can provide that code
  • You can't install the database drivers they would rely on, or configure the Tomcat for them
  • You don't have access to the database

So it's a definite "no" for Cloud.

Just wondering if they have any new services to achieve this since it have already been an year since the original question was asked.

I'm afraid there's nothing new.
