Can I import default values into a multi select field?

I am creating a custom multi select field that will have a big list of values.

Is there a way to import the list some how instead of entering each one individually?

I'm talking about roughly 50,000 values.

George, you can do it if you automate using wget. Capture the details of adding one using the browser developer console and replay the same using wget.

Another option is a database custom field https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.keplerrominfo.jira.plugins.databasecf

But more than that, you are probably going to making the create/edit screens loading performance bad by having so many values in a custom field.

Thanks. Your performance remark nixes the idea.
