Can I use the Resolutions table as the options for a Custom Field?

I'd like to create a custom field that stores a "possible resolution" for an issue.

I can see how I would create a Custom List field and add a set of options to it, but what I want is for the list to exactly match the items in the Resolutions table, especially if I decide to add a new resolution.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks for any advice.

There is no built in type to do the job. The easiest thing probably will be to write a service that sets the custom field options at every interval.

Thanks for that - thinking laterally, always useful!

You could also use the "database values field" plugin, which can generate a select list from a database table. The resolutions live in a database table :-)
