How to edit or add a new item in a customized dropdown field?


I had inported few datas into the jira. While exporting i had created a customed field as a drop down named as sub-projects. Succesfully all the data from the excel sheet where imported. All the 'sub-projects' are apprearing as a dropdown.

Now i want to add a new sub-project while creating a new issue. But im not able to as the dropdown is not allowing to add or edit the dropdown list.

This widget could not be displayed.

Only administrators can add or update select lists, and it's done via the Administration UI. It is not done on the issue screens.

In admin -> custom fields
