Adding Values to Cascading select List


we need to present a list of options to users, while creating an issue.
First they have to select from list A and then List B.
The options in list B are dependent on the values chosen in list A and to achieve this functionality we are using cascading select list, now my question is if we want to update the list, how we do it?

Do we have to go custome fields and manually update options values available?

but once we migrate project to production, in case if we want to add a new option, then? Only Admin can go to Custome Field and new options?

Yes, only the admin can add more options to the custom field.

Is there any other way that we can maintain this cascade select list?

You can write your own plugin to deal with that, or, use labels, or try the nfeed plugin. Somewhere I put an example of using javascript to retrieve values for a select list from a web service or a plain file using jsonp.

how to do that. I mean a new plug-in. I tried doing it but it seems jira doesnt support populating select list from plug-in. correct me if I m wrong.

Here is my question -

if you have more options thend store it in any data base and populate with following plugin

So you are saying we can get the value options from another database? then we can create some UI or something to update that list in the database?
