Is there a way to import a list of values for a field to define the multi-level field values instead of copy/paste or manually typing them in? This is in regards to the "Multi-Level Cascading Select" add-on. API, command line, etc are all prefered over manualy typing them in.
While not currently supported by the plugin, it is possible to programatically add options to an MLCS custom field configuration if you're willing to write a short script in your language of choice.
You'll need to interact with the REST API, namely the following two URLs:
to discover which options already exist for the field configuration, and
for adding new options. You need to check existing options because otherwise you might create duplicate options with the same value.
Each field configuration affects one or more issue types for one or more projects, so the first step would be to find the following information:
Then you should be set to start importing new options from your data source (CSV or whatever).
To add an option, call the MLCS REST API above. The optionValue must be URL encoded. If the parentOptionId is not included, the option will be created at the root level, otherwise the option will be created as a child of the specified parent option. For example,
# Add an option to the root level curl -D- -u username:password -XPOST 'http://localhost:8080/rest/multi-level-cascading-select/1/option?fieldConfigId=10101&optionValue=First%20Level' # Add an option as a child of an existing option (with id 10612) curl -D- -u username:password -XPOST 'http://localhost:8080/rest/multi-level-cascading-select/1/option?fieldConfigId=10101&optionValue=Second%20Level&parentOptionId=10612'
Hope that helps.
