Can I auto-populate a single choice select list custom field with values from another project?

I have a customer that wants a dropdown select list that lists all of the tickets from a specific project. The dropdown list would have to autopopulate to reflect new tickets in that project and deleted or closed tickets.

Is this even remotely possible?

It's possible with a 3rd party addon, please check the plugins that can create dynamic custom fields:


One possibility would be to have database custom field. Configure the datasource to JIRA DB.

I have used the first one. Second looks similar.
