Hi @Guru ,

There is no import option available to create new values for single select custom field. Instead you can use rest api Create custom field options (context)

You should know the custom field ID and context ID to add values. 

POST: /rest/api/3/field/{fieldId}/context/{contextId}/option
Example:  https://<baseURL>/rest/api/3/field/customfield_10006/context/10174/option
Here 10174 is the context ID

You can pass json body as follows:

  "options": [
      "disabled": false,
      "value": "L4"
      "disabled": false,
      "value": "L5"
      "disabled": false,
      "value": "L6"

Hi @Guru ,
If you're looking for a way to import options without manually using the API, you can try using the app External Data for Jira Fields.

With a file data source and the Field Options Sync feature, you can easily import many options at once. Plus, you can target a native Jira select list, so uninstalling the app won't be an issue.

I hope this helps!


(Please note: I work with the vendor of this app.)
