Say you have a need for a single or multi select custom filed which contains version from all projects.
Does anyone know of any existing plugins? If not. What would be the best approach?
Would this require a new custom field plugin if nothing exists in the market place? Last I checked script runner scripted fields were read only.
You are going to need a new custom field add-on. It's going to be complex to write too, unless you drop the idea that the items in it are "versions". Versions belong to projects, so the code in JIRA connects them a lot. If your field were to contain proper version objects, it won't work on issues because the issue is part of a project that many of the options are not.
It might be better to simplify it. Create a simple custom field with standard options. Then write a listener that listens for version events (create, update, delete), so that when a version is added, it copies the name of the version (and project?) into the new custom field. You'll want code for version renames, deletes, archives and so-on.
