Is it possible to Extend a custom field to include projects from another jira server(script runner)

Using Script runner - How to extend the "Your Project" field to also include all projects from JIRA server 2 that I can view in JIRA server 1, selecting a platform field first (choice between JIRA server 1 and JIRA server 2)

How can i Ensure that current user can see projects according to his visibility ??

You can, but it might be quite complex.  You would need a field that could read the other Jira over REST and grab the list of projects.

There's a couple of approaches to this - you could write an add-on to do that as a field, or use an ordinary custom field and have a script that runs regularly, updating the  option list from the other machine.
