How to bulk add options to a custom field via CLI


I have a custom filed with drop down options (over 100) and would like to do this via CLI. 

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, there currently isn't any remote API support for doing this type of configuration.

No. As far as I am aware, there is still no REST API support available from Jira.


I searched this and I believe you are correct. Although, I found a way to accomplish this. If you have the script runner add-on and use the "built-in scripts" then you can bulk import custom field values.
