CF needed to provide a select list from external SQL database with ~ 50.000 items

Our need is to provide our Jira users a CF select box with autocomplete to select an item from an external sql database with ~ 30.000 items. We have already evaluated "Database Custom Field" plugin. This plugin works fine with shorter lists. I know this isn't an Jira issue but probably you could us suggest how we can solve this.

I haven't used this plugin myself but the nFeed plugin might be the one you'Re looking for:


Hi Christian.

nFeed seems for us as a "little" bit too expensive. Currently we will evaluate jdbv :

Thx, Frank

jdbv looks for us as a good option. Group/second level select is very noteworthy as well.

The Limit of the ajax-autocomplete field should be parameterizable.

I was pulling in a table of ~60,000 rows. I tried jdbv, but could never get the Ajax mode to work. I ended up using the Kepler database plugin. The setup was a little tricky, but it wasn't that bad and the plugin worked as expected.

Hi Jason. We faced the same situation as you. Kepler was the next candidate and it worked for us. Kepler is indeed an option for this usecase. On jdbv we like that it's opensource and there is a change to modify and analyse it.
