HI @Angus Smith 

You would first need to create a custom field in the system to store the suppliers.

Then you can import them via external import cvs option, this requires you to be jira administrator.

Hi @Angus Smith 

 

Can you explain it what do you mean by suppliers? Those should be a new account in Jira? 

Angus Smith March 11, 2024

Hi Sebastian, thanks for responding. By suppliers, I mean companies that we deal with. This particular issue is for our procurement department, so that when they log an issue, they can just select one of the supplier companies we deal with from a drop down in one of the screens. Here are two screenshots as a reference.Suppliers 2.pngSuppliers 1.png

I'm afraid  that this is not possible to do via rest api (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-36112). I don't know other solution how you can update CF values in a bulk.

Hi, ok so if I cant upload the bulk list, then how do I do one by one? (I am very new to Jira and especially to being an admin). Where would I go to add the entries individually?

Hi @Angus Smith 

Go via the cog wheel to the issues section, then on the left hand menu choose Custom Fields

Find the custom field "Supplier Name", press the 3 dots and the end and choose context and default value.

Then choose Edit options.

Also see de documentation; edit-a-custom-fields-options
