How to add build number to select list


I need to add each passed build number to a single select list in an issue in order for it to be available for the user to select it.

How can I achieve this automatically?

I'm using Jenkins for my builds.

You can't, without coding.

A select list is a field who's content options are set by an administrator.  You'd need to log in as an admin and add the new option.  This is not a function available under REST, so the only way to do it externally would be to give Jenkins an admin account and do some scripting in the GUI.  The coding option would be to write something that does allow Jenkins to use a REST call that can then be translated into an admin action to update the option list.

However.  If you wanted to add versions from Jenkins, that's already supported by Jenkins (I think you need an add-on for it, in Jenkins).
