This should be possible through Script Runner also I didn't tried it by myself. You need the OptionsManager (as already mentioned by Chaithra)

OptionsManager optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()

and the createOption() method of this manager. You can get the fieldConfig for this method for the current issue and the customfield cf like this

def fieldConfig = cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)

If it's a single select list the parentOptionId is null. But you have to set a valid sequence and I think to get a valid sequence value you have to get all options for this fieldConfig (optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig)) and determine the next sequence number.



Yes you can do this by writing custom post function.

Refer com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.manager.OptionsManager for more details on creating options etc

I dont know about script runner, but we had done this in JIRA Service/ JOB Plugin. So this is doable in postfunction

Can it be done via script runner?

Any sample on how to implement?

please find the sample

Issue issue

CustomField customField

String value; //value to be added as option

Option opt = null;

FieldConfig relevantConfig = customField.getRelevantConfig(issue);

List<Option> options = optionsManager.findByOptionValue(value);

if(null != options){

for (Option option : options) {

FieldConfig fieldConfig = option.getRelatedCustomField();

if (relevantConfig != null && relevantConfig.equals(fieldConfig)) {

return option;





opt = optionsManager.createOption(relevantConfig, null, (long) 0, value);
