How do I bulk insert values into select list?

If I know the CustomField and CustomFieldConfig Id's can I just bulk insert values into the customerFieldOption table? I just wasn't sure if another table were involved or not.

I basically am just setting up our site and wanted to insert a list of build numbers in bulk, these will then be left in the system. It would just be easier than entering several hundred numbers manually especially since I need to enter them for multiple field configs.

You can use a Script Runner plugin builtin script to easily mass import custom field values.


Thanks that looks like it will do what I need.

Hi there

Perhaps you might want to try using Jelly Script to achieve this configuration.

For more information, you can refer on this : Jelly Tags

Hope it helps :)


I will look at that I was just hoping it would be a simple SQL statement since this is just a one time thing but I would rather do it correctly as well. Thanks for the tip.

The Jelly Tags may work but how do you Get Info on a Custom Field? What I mean is that Jelly allows you to Create a new field and put in values but one thing I didn't see examples of are how do I add values to an existing field and also to a field with a specific field configuration?
