Hi @Radhika Rajendran

You might want to consider the app External Data for Jira Fields, which allows you to use CSV files as a data source. You can manually re-upload the file as needed or automate the process via a REST API.

For fetching specific values into custom fields, the app offers configurations such as dependent fields, among others depending on your use case.

I hope this helps.

Please remember, the marketplace offers additional options that might suit your needs, which you can find through a search. I should mention that I am collaborating with the vendor of the app I recommended.

Best regards,

Hi @Radhika Rajendran  If I am not wrong you are trying to create a select list custom field which get option/values from CSV or external data source, right ? 

With the help of plugin only you can create such custom field, Element Connect plugin works for you, I think not sure. As Element Connect DC version support CSV file as Data Source but you are on cloud you can use REST API or put data in any supported database (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Azure SQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle) to get data and show as field option.

Hi Vikrant ,

Thanks. I have concerns about data security. We deal with sensitive data which we cannot share with external apps. Do Elements Connect have access/store the data anywhere outside our organization?
