I'm using this version 1 plugin for this specific behavior(typing the first 3 characters):

It reads the data from a db table.

Of course,

This is a version 1 plugin so you need to follow the instructions here at the Installing Plugins 1 type add-ons in JIRA and Bamboo section

You need to restart jira

Next you create a database values custom field and take note of the id

Then you need to upload a file with the sample configuration file (filled with your specific parameters) at <INSTALL_DIR>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes

The file needs to have the name jira-database-values-plugin-[customfieldid].properties with the id of the previously created custom field

Maybe you need to restart jira again

Here are the specifics:

If you have any questions please let me know

PD: there're more free and similiar alternatives but i didn't try with them. look at cPrime Database Custom Field
