Bulk add Select List options from a file


I have a very long list of values to add to a Select List field.

It will be very cumbersome to add that one by one manually.

Is there a way to bulk add these options ?

I didn't way any examples using Jelly or Groovy scripts.

I find people using direct HTTP request but I have a very difficult proxy which blocks everything:



Thanks in advance,

Have you tried https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/Examples

It is a great tool which may speed up a lot of things for you.

Unfortunately I don't have access to the server (I just have admin account on JIRA).

So far I managed to import the value by importing dummy issues with these values through CSV import. It's kind of a hack but it works quite well !
