Importing project from another Jira instance: how do we mass import custom field (multi select) options?

Hello,

We are importing a project from another Jira instance. In the project to be imported, there are several custom fields with multi select. In these custom fields are hundreds of options, more than can be reasonably entered individually by hand. Is there a way to perform a mass import of these options from a list?

Script runner has a built-in script for importing values. You just put them in a text area one per line, select your custom field context, then import: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/GRV/Built-In+Scripts#Built-InScripts-BulkImportCustomFieldValues

We actually ended up doing a CSV import, but this method would have worked good, too.
