I need to add a custom field for client's name which will give me a list of existing values so I won't insert a duplicate name in DB. It should look something like that:
Does JIRA have such fields?
If you have an external DB with the client names, I would really recommend Database Custom Field free plugin. It did wonders for us.
Other option would be to use JIRA's Components field (if you don't really use it now). Regarding this options:
Since it's a JIRA system field (generic like Affected Versions and Fixed Versions) you can't rename it. But you can add a description below the field using Field Configuration. Go to the relevant one and search for "Component/s" - add a description there. If you must have a field with name "Client's name" you may consider adding a new new custom field of type Lables. It has the same functionality as Components (autocomplete, ability to add more clients on the fly) but lacks the ability to prevent specific users from adding new values/clients from within the field and ability to assign watchers and assignees to each label. Generally, I think this could be a good solution for you.
Ok, I will add on it. First, Thanks Peter for the nice words of yours. Next, we are preparing something even better, check: http://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/KCFPRO/Example+1+-+Huge+Data+Sets Is is available only on request for now.
